There's a no parking sign there now- hopefully it's permanent and not only for SXSW!

Nope, no stop signs or crosswalks to use for crossing 24th between Guadalupe and the far western edge of San Antonio.  See for yourself on Google Street View.  Remember, San Antonio at that intersection forms a T with 24th where she was arrested.  San Antonio is one way going north so there isn't a need for traffic signals or signs to control vehicles crossing 24th in a southward direction because they all should be headed north.  She was arrested on the south side of 24th.  Of course, she may have ran the light controlling the western end of San Antonio without crossing 24th at all.  I'm curious to hear her side of the story. 

The police should focus their resources on modifying driver behavior around pedestrians, and not let their attention be diverted by "jaywalking" if they really want to make things safer for pedestrians.

Has anyone confirmed what street she crossed to get cited for jaywalking, San Antonio or 24th?  There aren't any pedestrian control signals on the side of 24th St. where she was arrested, and no crosswalk to use.  It's not possible to fail to obey a pedestrian control signal that is not there.  She may not have been jaywalking in the first place, according to its definition in the state transportation code, if she was crossing 24th to get to the spot where the video starts.
