The Purpose Of Street Lighting
Studies have shown that roadway lighting is an effective tool in helping provide a safer driving environment. Numerous before and after nighttime crash studies have shown that roadway lighting helps prevent accidents and that the benefits far exceed its cost. It should be remembered that roadway lighting is to assist the motorist during nighttime driving and any additional area being illuminated is of secondary benefit.
