Summary

Lighting streets and public areas is critical but can be expensive.

Proper city and roadway lighting cuts down on crime, enhances human and transportation safety, enables longer working hours in commercial areas, and adds ambiance to popular venues. High-quality LED lights offer significant energy savings over older technology fixtures, although LED lighting is generally more costly to install than older types of lighting.
