    Default Back to the Dark age

    Essex County council has decided to have cut backs one of them being turning of the street lamps,Maldon where I live is the first town to have this done as a trial.
    So now at the stroke of midnight all the street lights now go off untill 5.00am.
    It is now like living back in the fifties when there was only only one or two street lights about,the difference being now we have hoodies and low lifes, the crime figures will be interesting reading in 6 months time !!,had a look out the window last night about 1.0am very spooky and dark quite expected to see an air raid search light start shining into the sky!.think it might be time to upgrade my car security system.

    I wish they'd do that with the traffic lights as well!

    I am in Braintree too. I cant see what the fuss is about if its done sensibly. Lights out at 12pm? back on at 6am. Plenty of unlit roads anyway. And we will obviously get lower Council Tax bills if money is saved.

    Got to disagree - street lightings there as a deterrent for the scum bags, as well you seeing your way. I cant see any council making a reduction in CT, they'll just make dig up and fill more holes in March to use up the budget.

    im for turning the lights out but only on motoways and major A roads.

    our council are on about this but only turning every other light out on estates and B roads and all lights on main A roads and motorways between the hours of 12 thru to 5am.

    It's just a stupid idea that's going to have a big impact on public safety. We get enough idiots crashing from racing at the lights by my house and vandalising the bus stops & cars as it is, it'll be a nightmare without street lights. I'm sure the violent crime rates will soar as well, especially given Grays' crime rates already.

    Better get used to it, Labour is closing power stations and not replacing them.

    Wont harm the market for trip lighting that everyone is going to be fitting to their houses.

    Or is it a cunning plan to be ready for the Luftwaffe this time?
