Please, let there be light

By From page A10 | April 25, 2014

In my neighborhood, Central Davis, there are five street lights that are burnt out, and each of them has been out for at least six months to a year. They are at the intersections of Sixth and C, Fifth and E, 10th near B and two lights on B — one slightly north of Sixth and one slightly south of Sixth. They are all within five blocks of City Hall.

At night, all of these intersections are dark and hazardous to drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists alike. The intersection at Fifth and E streets is especially dangerous since that intersection is heavily traveled both day and night. The many cars turning off E, both right and left, onto Fifth cut across oncoming traffic at the same time as pedestrians and bicyclists are attempting to cross Fifth Street, and all this has been taking place in the dark for months.

When is the city going to replace these lights and why have they been neglected for so long?
