Thr grittier areas of Hong Kong have the worst street lighting as well as organised and petty crime. Much of this is under the radar but blights the lives of the poorest in society living terrible conditions and surrounded by racketeering type crimes.
Studies have shown that better street lighting can reduce crime by upto 41%
Should the government spend our money of lamp posts with WIFI or just plain old better lighting for the districts that need it. The answer is obvious.
