Street Light not working? – please report it!

st-augustines-at-night-copyStreet lights are something we all take for granted. Yet when they do not work, the ‘dark places’ can cause fear. That well-lit and trusted path can become a place to avoid; the road can become a potential accident spot. Indeed, they can be hiding places for criminals!

The absence of good quality lighting can deter some people from leaving their homes – older people in particular, or those who are infirm can become prisoners in their own homes on an evening.

So do us all a favour – if you see a street light that is not working then please report it!

The East Riding Council maintains over 39,000 street lights and relies on members of the public to report those that are not working (or those that stay on in the daylight). You can report faults at:
