When you jaywalk instead of using a crosswalk in a dream, the message can be about how doing the same thing often leads to the same result. The street symbolizes your sense of direction and where you are going. Crossing the street represents making changes in life direction. Not taking the crosswalk can signify breaking out of the pack - or overcoming old limitations. Even if you are approached by police (critical conscience) for doing something 'illegal' - this dream is actually a powerful sign that you are following your own sense of direction.
