If somebody runs a red light on purpose, should they get a ticket? Simple Yes or No question.?

I'm doing a survey for class, and it's just a simple question, don't ask "Well did they hit somebody?" or "Was there anybody around when it happened?" or "Are they elderly?" or anything like that.

Just. Point. Blank.

If somebody runs a red light on purpose, should they get a ticket?

Yes or no.

You can put a reason why if you want to, though it's not necessary.

Update:

Again;

I can't express this enough.

Do not make up an instance.

Do not say, "for example"

I didn't say anything about an emergency vehicle or any details.

Simply.

Should they get a ticket?

Update 2:

Also, please check out my other question;

It's also for the project.

Don't change your answer based on that though! :) http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=200904...

    If the traffic lights were faulty and stuck on red-no.

    Any other time-yes.

    It's to hard to say simply yes or no. You said you can give a reason for your answer.

    The majority of the times yes a ticket should be given but in special instances (emergency for ex) then no.

    No, because there may be other circumstances.

    An emergency vehicle with lights and sirens is behind you on a one way street and you are first at the light.

    A vehicle is coming up behind you fast, skidding out of control.

    A passenger of yours needs to be rushed to the hospital immediately.

    A man with a ski mask and gun comes running up to your car. (A little crazy, but anythings possible)

    Etc..

    EDIT:

    "You can put a reason why if you want to, though it's not necessary."

    Those were a few reasons why I said no. If you only wanted yes or no answers, you should have said so.

    NO

    Better?

    Yes.

    If there was an emergency enough to run a light then a ticket will be the least of their worries.

    Yes, I think it's just breaking the law. Think about if there wasn't a law like that... There would be SOO many accidents!
