Tag Archive for: Why Don’t Highways have LED Street Lights?

I believe many of us have had this doubt while driving: why are there no street lights on most highways? At night, when driving on a highway, everything around is pitch black except for the car headlights and the reflective road markings. We can barely see any other light, which can make us feel somewhat unsafe. Why are there no street lights on the highways? Wouldn’t it be safer if there were street lights?

Actually, that’s not the case. The lack of street lights is not to save costs, but a comprehensive consideration of various factors such as safety, construction, and management.
