Why even have street lights?

Jan 13, 2020

To the editor:
The Town of Bethel will meet once more to move forward on converting all street lights in the town to LED. I am all for “greenness” but over in our part of town there is only one street light, at the intersection of 17B and Burr Rd. Why is it there?
The Incandescence has no practical application except for locals sighting their 22 calibers. So I ask, Why does the town of Bethel even have street lights? Perhaps so the deer can find a crosswalk?
Bethel would more so qualify as a “Green” award winner if we just turned off the street lights (wherever they are)?
