Do you think Hereford street lights should be turned off?
A Herefordshire councillor has backed an idea of switching off some of Hereford’s traffic lights and street lamps in the early hours to save energy.
Coun Felicity Norman is supporting the proposal put forward by resident Jon Morgan.
Mr Morgan, from Broomy Hill, has suggested switching off Hereford’s traffic lights between midnight and 6am along with every other street light.
“I sometimes have to make early morning journeys through Hereford on my way to Birmingham Airport,” he said.
“Often I find myself marooned at traffic lights. I think ‘why are these lights holding me up when there is nobody else about’? It’s not just a waste of energy but money, too.”
