Fun fact: schools that participated in programs where they turned off all the lights at night time experienced less crime (vandalism mainly) than they had when the lights were on. I no longer have the link to the scholarly article about this but I’m sure a quick google search could find it. I believe it was called a dark skies program.
I fully support turning off all street lights between the hours of 2am and 5am. Those few hours would save countless dollars in energy and would allow people who have never seen the stars to fully appreciate the beauty of this world. It would also help observational astrophysicists who fight with light pollution.
