Merry Christmas and ho-ho-hold up. Jaywalking Santa Claus’ better watch out because instead of going on a naughty or nice list, Angelenos who are just trying to cross the street in the wrong spot couldn’t get ticketed a whopping $250.

LAPD have plans to ravage the Downtown area with this high-priced tickets. In Los Angeles, Jaywalking consists of walking across a street against a red light, even if the its just the red hand light flashing for people walking to “hurry.”

According to LAist, the LAPD posted on their Facebook that we¬† “may see increased enforcement during the holiday season to ensure pedestrian safety and smooth traffic flow!”

Way to Scrooge us over, Los Angeles.
