For the past 20 years I have lived here, I have considered the street lights we have now to be inadequate in providing a uniform coverage for safety.
The lights have an orange glow and are inefficient. I went to the local car dealers' row in Fairfield one night and saw how much better those white lights are on the street and lots. I see too, that Fairfield has white lights on most of their streets. I contacted the maintenance department in Fairfield to get information on their lights.
It is obvious that a white light would provide a brighter and larger light coverage than those we have now. We are concerned about crime and public safety and how to improve our city, so I wanted to get an open forum about this situation.
I think if we would put the white lights along Walters Road and other heavy traffic areas, as well as residential, we would be much safer and could possibly eliminate the multiple lights we have now with brighter area coverage.
Just changing one area would prove my point once the citizens could see the improvement with white lights instead of the present fixtures. Considering the cost factors, it would take less power to run a brighter light over a given area than so many of these orange lights. Take a drive to Fairfield and see for yourself what I am asking this city to consider in making Suisun City a safer place to drive and live. Your comments are invited.
