Christine Arth: Let there be light in downtown Truckee lot

To the Town of Truckee,

I work downtown and appreciate all of the new parking adjacent to the railroad. However, my heart is in my throat as I walk to my car after work, when it is pitch black.

I cannot understand why there has not been lighting of any kind installed throughout that lot. Drivers are unfamiliar with the layout, and it is very difficult to see one-way directions and where the lanes go. Cars cannot see pedestrians until the last second, and no one can see icy patches or snow and puddles.

It is only a matter of time until an accident occurs and someone brings a lawsuit against the town.

Please address this concern for locals and tourists alike. Thank you.
