To get lincolnshire county council to turn on the street lights at night
In 2016 lincolnshire county council to save 1.7 million pounds turned off over half the street lights in the county overnight.5 years on this is still the case ,and even though they state crime hasn't increased because of it many residents don't feel safe being out at night in the pitch black.The council also need to consider with the state of the roads with potholes etc no lighting will inevitably cause more accidents as well especially in rural villages.
Why is this important?
I am calling for Lincolnshire County Council to reverse this decision and turn on the lights in the evenings so as to give the taxpayers of boston and surrounding villages piece of mind and the confidence to leave their homes at night whether it be to walk a dog ,go to a friends ,cycle to work or simply to put their bins out.People feel safer with light.
Please join me in signing this and to get some action taken.
