Recently there have been a couple of nights when the streetlights in Lyme Rd failed to come on. What a fantastic revelation it has been. I have come to the conclusion that street lighting is completely unnecessary after midnight and of questionable use after 10pm.

I see that EDDC have been looking into this during the year. In "The Knowledge (12/1/07)" it was stated...

Devon street lights may be turned off to cut carbon emissions
Thousands of street lights could be dimmed or removed in Devon to help combat global warming. Devon's highways department says that street lighting is responsible for nearly 40% of the county council's carbon footprint. The council has been working with the police over road safety and assessing areas with low levels of crime at night. Campaigners have voiced some concerns over the proposal, citing the potential consequences of the measures on both road safety and crime.

I for one hope we see some action very soon and start saving money, CO2 and light pollution.

Geoff.
