I WAS surprised to see the letter (December 3) condemning the police for taking action against somebody who had been caught jumping a red light.

Both the writer and the offender need to understand that jumping a red light is not a game, but both a deliberate and potentially deadly act for which there can be little or no legitimate excuse. The red light is not there as a challenge - it is quite clearly telling you to stop.

I suggest the offender studies the Highway Code again and re-learns the sequence of traffic lights and their purpose - for all our sakes. The only regrets that seem to be expressed in the letter is the fact they got caught.
