Bring this to Washington State! There are places that campuses cross city streets and campus police have joint jurisdiction in these places (able to cite for driving violations, etc). I hate knowing I could lose my license just for innocenty walking, or driving, down a city street that can be classified as being on campus. There are no provision in the laws here protecting us from prosecution in this case as I understand it.
