THE two recent fatal accidents on emergency lanes of expressways which happened during the night could have been avoided if the highways were lit or had street lamps.
Highway concessionaires could allot an amount in their budget to build street lamps on expressways for the safety of motorists at night. Expressways need not be brightly lit like federal roads, just enough for motorists to see what lies ahead.
The only lighted areas on expressways are the stretch a few kilometres before and after the toll plaza.
