NORMAL--People caught jaywalking in the Twin Cities won't be getting away with it for long.
Normal and Illinois State University Police are cracking down on the pedestrian problem.
They say jaywalking is out of hand especially near the ISU campus.
Police began handing out flyers to jaywalkers this week warning them about its dangers.
They say when people don't obey traffic signals or use crosswalks, that's when accidents happen.
Those who are caught could also face a large fine.
Normal Assistant Police Chief Kirk Ijams hopes the information helps people rethink their steps.
"Vehicle and pedestrian crashes, pedestrians are going to lose every time," said Ijams. "They are the ones who have the most to lose. They need to be aware."
Fines for jaywalking start at $120 dollars.
