Street Lamp Problem

In all communities street lamps waste incredible amounts of energy when no one is on the street to benefit from the expended light. Street lamps are essential for safety and many states and countries have laws requiring minimum amounts of light. The major problem is protecting not only the people affected by street lamps but the environments and resources affected as well.

Electricity is something that is very important, and it is vital to conserve it for more useful implementations. There really is no need to light up some streets, but some do need it. This sounds like a civil engineering and city code issue that depends on the area and its function. Plus the odds of people being out at the late hours of the night are slim to none and the lights just there to attract bugs.
