Safely light the police station

By
From page A6 | February 12, 2014 |

The city of Davis Public Works Department has updated the posted street light repair list as of Jan. 24, but unfortunately, it is not complete. I have previously mentioned the street light that is burned out in front of the Davis police station. That’s not a good place for obscurity! That light is No. 3946 and provides light for the sidewalk, the “traffic-calming” circle, the police station parking lot and the Unitrans bus stop.

Actually, since it is supposed to provide light and some degree of safety at night for Unitrans passengers, I am thinking of contacting Unitrans and suggesting that they not let off riders at stop No. 73 because it is not safely lighted. Quite a few students get off at that stop and walk (in the dark) to the nearby apartments. Given our rain and still early nightfall, this is a recipe for an “accident.”

Maybe the reason that this light has taken so long to repair is that it is a PG&E-managed light, not a city of Davis light. In any event, it has been burned out too long. In public health and safety, prevention is the watchword and that is not taking place with this light and a number of others around town I mentioned in a previous letter to the editor.
