Most cities light their freeways through the city. However, this is not the case for Columbia. The freeways are as dark as the city streets at night. Why is this? There are no sidewalks. People have to walk and they are not going to walk through the swamps on either side of the road so they walk on the roads. I have almost hit a couple myself. Scares the &%#* out of me. They should at least wear bright clothing and face traffic. But still, why does Columbia not light the freeways through town? I noticed this immediately when I first moved here 13 years ago and am not surprised at the number of these incidents.
