In 2004, a woman was driving a car in Pennsylvania. She was also followed by a police car that asked her to pull over. The woman was driving in a dark lit area, so for her own safety, she decided to drive a bit further and pull over in a well lit area. She kindly explained the officer why she did not pull over immediately, but she still got arrested and had to spend a night in jail.
There seems to be an ethical dilemma between the woman’s rationale and the law. On one hand it is just common sense to ensure one’s safety, but on the other hand the law enforcement officers have their duties as well.
The law of Pennsylvania is really simple, stating one needs to pull over immediately when asked. If one refuses, the officers might also think the driver is, say, smuggling drugs or hiding guns. Therefore, regardless of their safety, people have to pull over, even when common sense tells otherwise.
Nevertheless, there is a way to solve this dilemma without changing the law more complex simply by installing more street lights. Besides, LED lights are energy savers, highly efficient, environmentally friendly and have a long life span.
So the next question: where to get these LED Street Lights. Of course from Shanghai Metal Corporation. We sell LED lights that are five times more efficient than incandescent bulbs and that last for 50, 000 hours. That’s nearly six years.
