WIDER / Lighting


On roads without specially-built sidewalks, street lamps only cover one side of the road, while the other side of the road with green belts is in dim light, which offers a perfect place for criminals to hide and wait for the right moments when pedestrians pass by. This can put pedestrians’ lives and
property in danger.
However, WIDER can make the roads safer by adopting a different lighting system, which enables the same number of street lamps to illuminate a wider area.
