Better lighting needed on local streets

Tuesday November 11 2008

Dear editor,

I would like someone to address my concern about poorly-lit streets.

Winter Winter is coming and as we all know when winter comes, it gets dark outside around 6 p.m.

I know Dayfoot Drive isn’t the only street that is poorly lit.

There are at least 10 street lamps on my street,

but of the 10 only two or three actually give off a sufficient amount of light.

I’m aware that the poorly-lit streets aren’t major streets for most people but for a 15-year-old girl,

(or any girls for that matter) who has to walk these roads, it brings potential danger.

All the street lamps need are new lights.

I know my father has complained multiple times about this issue.

So, if you have a poorly-lit street please write and make the mayor and other authorities aware,

and if you happen to be part of the Town council that can fix this problem,

please take this into consideration.

I know any fit parent wouldn’t want their child walking down a dark street.

Even at 6 p.m. it gets dark.
