I can't believe this. No overhead lights are to be installed on our new strip of US 30.

It's dark out there and at night the angles of the pavement make seeing the lane lines very difficult.

Or are no lights going to make it easier for the NLPD to nail speeders?

Get your eyes checked. Turn your head lights on. If it is still too dark for you, move back to Chicago where they have the high intensity crime lighting you want.

It's the democalypse that Neighbor and Professor have been preaching about on every topic out here. No street lights for cover of darkness. Tricky democrats.

Seems you do a pretty good job yourself in turning topics into political debates!

What an idiotic statement.

When your sorry ass car gets T-boned by a truck you didn't see, you'll be the one crying that there isn't enough light.

When your dumb kid - or you - dressed in Goth black gets pegged by a car, you'll be pissed because the motorist never saw you.

When one of NLPD's finest comes out of the dark to pinch you for upwards of $600 while you're speeding and cell-phoning in a construction zone, you'll be the one moaning.

Don't say you turned down chance on here to be be rational.

Considering the expense regarding this new stretch of road, one would think they could afford some lighting. It's like building a $70 million dollar high school and then saying they can't budget enough money for two full time police to guard against a Sandy Hook style massacre. What a crock!

Obama and the democrats want it dark like north korea at night. Darkness is a trait of communism and the devil. They both go hand in hand!

So your complaining that the road is too dark and needs lighting. Thus creating an unsafe driving condition. Yet it your two posts you keep up the theme of New Lenox PD catching people for speeding and cell phoning in a construction zone. One would think you would not be concerned with NLPD catching you doing anything, as you would be concentrating on driving more carefully on a dark stretch of road. Seems to me your theme is just anti NLPD and really has little to do with the amount of lighting. Which the NLPD has no say over. Yes they could give input.However that particular agency does not govern such matters. And the way people drive around this town, NLPD most certainly does not need the cover of darkness to catch speeders or cell phone violators. In fact I would imagine that on an extremely dark road it would be very difficult to see someone inside a vehicle that is speeding past and be able to see if they are on a cell phone. So the cover of darkness may actually hinder the NLPD ability to see someone on said phone.

If your night vision is that poor you should not be driving. It is not that dark at any point on route 30, pay attention and you should not have a problem.

Or anyone who has any common sense, and can see through someones BS rant. Im all for more lighting and making the roadway as safe as possible. My family travels along there as well. However I am sure not foolish enough to think that the road is not lit to allow the local police to catch speeders.

No, not illegal, it is just STUPID. Laws don't fix stupid.

I think it does not matter what any other person believes is right. It may be their opinion but only my opinion truly matters. My little Georgy just loves running around up over there, and the only reason he can is due to there being no lights. I currently enjoy that he is happy, so I cannot say I want those lights. In fact, I have to request that all lights be removed from the streets so my little four year old grandson could always, at all times, have a joyous time roaming the dark streets. I'm sure him and my little Perisala would just love it! <3

I'm hoping its just not fully completed yet and that they'll have lighting on all cross roads at the very least!

Dont act like you cops don't like sticking it to people. That's why you took the job. That's your only thrill of the day........ruining someone else's.
