Broken Street Lights
While automobile are equipped with headlights to help drivers see at night, sometimes they are not enough alone. In many cases, roads are lined with street lights that illuminate greater areas of the road so that drivers can be more aware of their surroundings. Unfortunately, broken streetlights may severely limit visibility, putting drivers and their fellow motorists in danger.

The Dangers of Poor Lighting
Drivers rely on street lights to see other motorists. In many cases, headlights provide only limited visibility while street lights illuminate the entire road. This allows drivers to see other motorists who are approaching them, allowing them more time to react in the event of a potential accident.
When street lights are broken or nonexistent, drivers may have trouble seeing fellow motorists, which may lead to an accident. In many cases, the entity in charge of maintaining the road may be liable for injuries resulting from accidents since broken street lights or a lack of light may be counted as a road defect.
Drivers need to be able to see long stretches of the road in order to avoid potential dangers.
