When is someone right, and when is someone wrong?

Sometimes it's obvious. A motorist who notices a red traffic light but speeds through it anyway for example is wrong, and the motorist has broken the law. A car stopping at a red traffic light is right.

There are situations all around us where there are laws that allow us to be protected and feel in safe hands in different situations. These are known as our rights.

So the motorist that deliberately ignored the red traffic light did not have the right to do that, according to the law.
