Relight the Night
Lately, I've started tweeting SF311 more and more about street lights being burned out. Whenever I see one out, I'll tweet the following:
- exact location (eg. SW corner San Bruno Ave; mid-block north side Newhall btwn Oakdale and Palou)
- type of pole (metal or wood)
- pole number (if you can find one on it)
Some lights are maintained by the SFPUC, others by PG&E, and still others by the Port Authority. Thank goodness that SF311 can figure out for us which.
If you see a street light out, especially if it's on your street, please call or tweet SF311. A burned out street light invites people to do bad things in its shadow, so help make our neighborhoods safer by relighting the night.
