Switching street lightening off during night

Not only does this save money but it saves the impact on the environment. Perhaps not in the city centre but for example the collectors road the A452 which is next to the m6 it doesn't need lightening because the m6 generates enough for both roads. I use the roads very early in the morning and I can't see why they couldn't be switched off I certainly wouldn't find any problems travelling to work.

Why the contribution is important

To save money and the environment .

    Don't you think criminals will love the darkness?

    This is one thing that I believe will create more problems than it solves, lighting is imperative for safety and security. I believe certain areas are having LED lights fitted to cut down the cost. This I think should be the norm.

    I know where you are coming from with 'criminals' but it has worked for other councils. I've use to live in North Warwickshire and it was implemented there and it works. And for the safety reasons, I work very early mornings and I would have no problem with no lightening, some mornings I see no one else on the road. Yes I agree the LED lights where fitted to save cost. I can remember when street lights use to go off after midnight because they where on a timer, it use to work then.
