HC Deb 27 January 1972 vol 829 c518W
Mr. Luce

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he is satisfied that it is necessary to have flashing beacons operating at pedestrian crossings 24 hours of the day and more especially in the late hours of the night when the flow of traffic and pedestrians is low; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Eldon Griffiths

Yes. Over a third of all pedestrian casualties occur during the hours of darkness.
