    I think a large problem with municipal code, is not having any idea how to look through it.

    When the LAPD was doing the jaywalking sting last year, I tried to go through the LAMC to find out the specific rules on jaywalking. It was extremely difficult, becuase the best I could do was search for “jaywalking” and “crosswalk”, and parse through many results. There was no way of asking “Show me the part of the municipal code that deals with jaywalking”.

    Maybe building a list of common questions, and being able to return the relevant codes to the questions?
