This is so annoying. So much so that I have chosen to write various letters. Because letter writing gets things done!

Seriously though. Why is it shops need to leave their lights on at night? Oh yes, I'm sure the occasional passer by might get a clearer view, but surely any potential sales you might possibly get are offset by the cost of leaving their lights on. It simply doesn't make sense. And the environmental damage too. Homebase is the worst, leaving every single goddamn light on with it.

Of course we all leave lights on too. It annoys me when I walk past a residential home and their lights are blazing. you are wasting money. This IS an environmnetal issue too, but we can happily ignore that and just point out that you WILL get charged for leaving a light on in the empty room. Other than to attract moths for some kind of moth powered machines. And I'm not sure that would really work. Hmm, maybe it would.... not sure how....

Still, this is just a little way in which we can do our bit for the environment. Go to it, peons!

Somerfields turns its lights off! As do I!

I live in the city and I miss the darkness of night. I miss the stars.

I agree we could use a lot fewer lights.

Shops should turn off their lights, but I think good street lighting is necessary. Also most shop lights are flourescent lights and therefore are much more efficient than the bulbs most people use and leave on at home.
