Yeah I'm not so much worried about crime but it is quite difficult to walk around at night without proper lights. I was walking around poorly lit neighborhood in Bucharest the other night and I had to use my phone flashlight to make sure I wasn't about to trip on a broken sidewalk or step in dog shit. Also, I already don't like biking in the dark and it would be a lot worse without street lights.
And here the air that I breathe isn't dead.
