Nobody's walking anywhere in rural areas. People do want/need to walk at night in urban/suburban areas, and they deserve to feel safe while they do so, and not be faced with the choice of having to hide indoors as soon as it's dark. Not to mention that it gets dark at like 4:00pm in the winter. Are people supposed to just not do anything after?

Also, what lio said^. Night being dark might be more natural, but getting jumped out on the street is natural too.
