Reader’s Letter: The need for street lighting in certain Windsor neighborhoods should not be ignored

Article content

With so many children in this city, you’d think there would be enough streetlights in our neighborhoods.

Specifically, two areas, near Roseland Golf Course and Victoria Boulevard, there are none.

As a 15-year-old girl who often cycled, I have observed during the summer how unsafe it can be to ride a bike through a neighborhood without streetlights at night.

Why are these two neighborhoods still without public lighting? Both are full of children who are often walking, cycling, scooting, etc. Cars often turn a corner very quickly and spotting a pedestrian can be very difficult in the dark.

The city must find a way to put streetlights in these areas to avoid accidents.

I believe that streetlights are much more important than many things our city has invested money for. I think adding these streetlight assets will bring much more comfort to the parents and children who live in these neighborhoods.

Protect our future generation.
