Switch street lights off

Switch the street lights off between the hours of 2 and 6am. There is hardly anyone out at this time of night and lights are not necessary.

Why the contribution is important

This saves th council money and cuts down on light pollution

    Very good idea.

    Crime increases. Accidents on roads.

    A town I know switched lights off 12:00 - 6:00am. After one year due to crime and accident increasing this was reversed.

    Staggering as the savings were incredible. This would save a great deal of money but at what cost to crime.

    I agree with 2 - 6.
    Since the updating of the lighting system, would it be possible to switch off alternate lights as an introductory experiment?
