Gazette column: Is turning off the street lights really that bad?

It’s “Thursday Thoughts” where I post my weekly Gazette newspaper column to my blog so you can have a read…

This week my column for the Gloucestershire Gazette is about night time street lighting, crime rates and how the fear of the unknown is often worse than the actual reality.

To read it, simply click to my Column page.

What do you think? Should street lights be left on at night or not? Do you think no street lights = increased crime rates? Let me know.
