When I return home and turn off the main road, everything will be dark. This will not be safe, especially for women on their own. What can I do?

Lighting will only switch off after 12.30am. Most dwellings have low level outdoor lighting and this is sufficient for someone to make their way from a vehicle to their house, or from the garage if they keep their vehicle in there overnight. The human eye adapts very well at low light levels, for example most people are able to move about their house at night without having to switch lights on.
