Let there be streetlights in France

RE: the letter “Only a Fool Breaks Two Second Rule” (January), I would suggest another reason for so many fatalities on French roads is the lack of lighting.

I was surprised, coming out of Paris towards Normandy recently, to find many major junctions and roundabouts were unlit. This, together with the lack of cat’s eyes, makes night driving in France much more hazardous than the UK.
