Where have all the cats eyes gone?
Have you noticed, when a road is resurfaced, that the cat's eyes disappear. Sometimes they're replaced, more recently not. Councils are being urged to switch off street lights after midnight.
OLDER drivers are possibly becoming "prisoners in their own homes" due to the pressure on councils to turn off street lights at night, a road safety group has warned.
Better maintained white lines on the roads are the key to "unlocking freedom" for elderly motorists, said the Road Safety Markings Association (RSMA).
The association's national director George Lee said: "There is mounting pressure on road authorities to turn off street lights at night, and we know that road markings are not being maintained to compensate."These factors may be keeping older family members needlessly prisoners in their own homes."
