What exactly is the POINT of having street lighting if it is to be turned off when most needed? Is it possible to take legal action against negligent local Councils?
At least half the county councils across the UK are plunging tens of thousands of streets into darkness to save money. Despite fears of increased accidents and crime, blackouts are being imposed after midnight in residential and rural areas by at least half the county councils across the UK. Cash-strapped town halls are either switching off street lamps or fitting dimmer switches as they try to cut energy bills and meet climate change targets.
These climate change targets come courtesy of an unholy alliance between various political parties and eco-cultists. The net result is that lives are endangered but hey…we’re doin’ our best to save the planet, man.
