Bexley Council has decided not to turn the borough’s lights out soon after
midnight. The accident and crime statistics (†) persuaded them that it was not a very good idea after all
and they have issued
a Press Release.
Where possible Bexley’s street lights, usually of the yellow sodium variety, will be converted to LED as suggested at the Places Scrutiny Committee in February 1ast year.
† At various meetings over the past year the Council reported that accident and crime figures were no worse than before.
