Red Light Means Stop

'Why wont they stop crossing the street, Mama?'

MC was very puzzled when she saw people crossing the street although the light was undoubtly red.

I told her that those people doesnt care what would happen to them and to those approaching cars when and if an accident would happen because of their carelessness.

'What if we follow them?'

I told her that those people are setting the wrong example. Following them would show that you are doing the wrong thing, too. A wrong is still wrong even though a lot of people is doing it.

'That man stepped on the curb even though it is still yellow.'

Well, I told her, better go for safety. You need the red light because that means stop. And you wait for the green light that signals go for the people to know that it is safe to cross the street.
