Not kept in dark
THE story headlined “Energy saving hits streets lights” (The Press, June 20) suggested that in the Harrogate area certain street lights would be turned off from midnight to 5am.
Could I suggest the idea of a sensor on each lamppost, so when someone is passing it lights up and switches off after a minute?
Should you really be keeping your community in the dark when the nights draw in, or will those who live in there have to carry a torch?
Also one does need to feel safe in their neighbourhood.
After midnight one needs to see any unwanted visitors who might be around.
