Lights on until daylight

We the undersigned petition the County Council to organise the lighting throughout our town to be on full beam, not half beam until 1 am, then reduced to half beam until daylight.

Potters bar and surrounding areas have been subjected to countless burglaries and attempted ones of late, these kind of violations leave a huge impact on people targeted.
No one feels safe, perpetrators can hide in the shadows, our town is feeling extremely vulnerable. Without lights, we cannot see.
My family were subjected to a frightening attempted burglary and unfortunately our statement was a waste of police time, as we had nothing to tell them as we could NOT see.
It is in everyone’s interest to feel safe in and around their homes.
Young adults coming home late, shift workers, dog walkers these are just a few examples of people who want to see, who NEED to see.
The pavements are uneven and cannot be seen in the dark, however pavements are a whole other argument. This is a whole other reason to light up until daylight.
