insecurity lights

Stumbled across that phrase in The End of Night. I like it.

People think in general that more light at night improves safety and security. When no evidence supports this. So, people adding more light to their yard and property is a marker of their insecurity and fear. They erect security lights; they should be called insecurity lights.

In fact, light at night is bad.
