ROAD LIGHTING. A SAFETY FACTOR

L'ECLAIRAGE ROUTIER. UN FACTEUR DE SECURITE

This article describes the investigations carried out in eastern France to relate night accidents to public lighting: systematic recording of accidents which occurred between 1969 and 1973 on three sections of road - measurement of the increase in the number of accidents - study of traffic at night along those three sections. Results show very clearly that lighting is one of the most important safety factors. On the sections with public lighting devices, a marked decrease in the percentage of accidents was recorded. /TRRL/
