When you cross the street through the middle and not at the intersections were you are supposed to. They call it Jay walking, because back in the 1900s in New York people new yorkers would call call tourist jays, and since jays were really impressed by all of the tall buildings they would walk up to the middle of the street to see how tall they were, therefore the word Jaywalking emerged
Jaywalking is ilegal

The trajectory of a pedestrian illegally crossing a large thoroughfare against incoming traffic.
When you cross a street with lots of incoming traffic, you will walk parallel to the flow of traffic and in a direction opposite to it. Then, when you see an opening, you will turn and dash through the other side anticipating (hopefully) the incoming vehichles. Seen from above, your trajectory takes the shape of the letter J, hence the expression "Jay walking."
