to cross a street without taking advantage of provided means of safe crossing (ie crosswalks, etc.)
the hooligans jaywalked across the street, causing many angry honks from middle aged business men who, when forced to slam on the brakes, spilled their cappucinos on their pants.

Crossing the street without following the crosswalk or other traffic regulations, usually on busy streets which can be hazardous.
The street whores jaywalk across the street so they can get all the attention and possibly get laid and paid, because their baby's daddy left them for some other hoe on Two Notch Road.
