Street lights needed for safety

In order to make our community better for drivers and pedestrians, we need more street lights. Street lights would prevent some car crashes and visibility would be much better for people walking in town.

First off, if there were more street lights, drivers would see where they are going a lot better and there would be fewer crashes. If a car breaks down or there is a wreck, someone would see it and help. Also, if a car goes around a corner or a turn that is sharp, it is less likely to crash if there are street lights.

Most importantly, if there were more street lights, people would feel safer. They could read the street signs and wouldn't take the wrong road. Cars would see walkers, joggers and bikers. If anything happened, someone would see and help.

If we had more street lights, the community would be much better. There wouldn't be as many people getting jumped, killed or raped because the light coming from the street light would be too bright and if something did happen, the bad person would get caught because people would see it.

Clearly, I think we need to add more street lights in the community. So, obviously, adding more street lights would be a good idea.
