Editor’s Note: This looks like a case for WALK RIGHT!, an ad hoc group of vigilante sidewalk etiquette enforcers who, in 1984, led by Joseph Virgil Skaggs (a.k.a. Joey Skaggs), had had enough of the outrageous behavior exhibited by inconsiderate, unconscious, hostile pedestrians in New York City.

This Fascist group, dressed in all black with WALK RIGHT! sweat shirts published a petition that listed sixty six rules for pedestrians which they wanted to have enacted into law. The list included such regulations as: No risque clothing on obese people. All joggers must wear bras or jock straps. No short people with umbrellas unless held at minimum height of 5′ 10″.

Pedestrians who violated the sidewalk rules were to be fined and forced to attend a WALK RIGHT! sidewalk etiquette school. WOR TV Channel 9 News and CNN, walked right into WALK RIGHT!
