We are participating in the W!SE Quality of Life Innovations competition as a part of our Social Science Research Program at the Bronx High School of Science in NYC. We conducted a survey asking the people of New York City on how they felt about the streetlights and perceptions of safety in their neighborhoods. Our results showed that 40% of males and 57.5% of females believed they would feel much safer with more streetlights. Equally as important, 52.4%, 52.6% , 57.1%, and 37.3% of the people of Brooklyn, Bronx, Manhattan, and Queens respectively, believe their safety will greatly improve with the implementation of more streetlights. Furthermore, 68.3%, 65%, 78.6%, and 43.1% of the people of Brooklyn, Bronx, Manhattan, and Queens respectively, are willing to pay more taxes for a higher number of streetlights in their neighborhoods. We have started this petition asking that government officials take a look into this issue and implement change quickly so that people feel safer walking through their own neighborhoods in NYC.
