In the Police song Roxanne, what does "You don't have to put on the red light" mean? It's bugging the crap out of me because I don't know what it means at all.

She put a red laser on her gun, that lyric means that the police are talking her down from a hostage situation, and don't want her to shoot anybody.

I figured it out I think it has to do with the red-light district where there's a bunch of sex shops and prostitutes stuff.

In the 80's people wore red lights on their heads and toggled them from on to off with a switch, mounted on a power pack, which you wore on your belt. It was the style, bro.

I always interpreted it that she had to go hit the crosswalk button to put on the red light to get cars to stop and "get all up in her goodies for mad profit". or however you say it
