Hi Alexis, I think you have a point - the motion sensor would show if people are moving about up ahead. But then again they could be triggered off by animals as well and maybe scare people walking unnecessarily. It's a tricky one and I think your idea of letting the community decide might be the best option - maybe by letting the lights have both options.

Hi Again - see also http://www.openideo.com/challenge/womens-safety/research/light-up-the-darkness-illuminate-urban-slums-with-low-cost-solar-technology-that-is-marketted-installed-maintained-by-women - Magnus Murray has some costings I think that may help you.

Good Stuff Alexis,
The only thing I was wondering about is whether the lights should be just motion sensored or on the whole time. I just feel that being able to see what's up ahead and behind you when walking at night would be a lot safer than just seeing what's around you.
