A traffic judge was lenient in the jaywalking case of a man who tried to help geese cross the Fairfax County Parkway.
According to The Washington Post, Jozsef Vamosi pulled his car to the side of the busy road during morning rush hour, and stepped out into the road to steer the geese to safety. No accidents happened as a result, but numerous cars had to slam on their brakes to avoid a pileup.
Vamosi told Judge Thomas E. Gallahue that he did what he had to do to save the three adult and eight baby geese.
Judge Gallahue acknowledged that Vamosi probably broke the law, but said that if he stays out of trouble for six months, the case will be dismissed.
