SIR - To save millions of pounds and help the environment, motorway lights in various places are to be switched off.With cuts being made eveerywhere, is it not time our councils stopped grass cutting of roadside verges and roundbouots etc? This would not only save millions of pounds of tax payers' money, but help cut CO2 emissions, encourage wild flowers, insects etc.We are always being told that ild areas are better for the environment, so why don't the councils set a good example? The money saved could then be spent on more worthwile issues. G Brown, Bideford.
