This particular thread is directed to what appeared to be a large school type group walking downtown shortly after the lunch hour on saturday between about 1 and 2pm. There were about 20 young children (8-10 years old or so) accompanied by 4-5 adults. I was driving, so did not actually do an exact count. HOWEVER, I did notice that this group crossed the street against the lights on multiple occasions. While I'm sure most of us have jaywalked at one time or another, it is not safe to do this with a large group of young kids, particularly when you're not able to watch each one individually. If the light at the crosswalk is clearly in the "do not walk mode" (indicated by a red hand), then you shouldn't be crossing the street with a group that large. It's not safe. It also gives children the wrong idea, that they can disregard the traffic lights and do that all the time.
(note:The incidents that I noticed were in the vicinity of the Rose hotel.)
