Concerns over LEDs overblown

SOME WORRIES and concerns are a little overdone.

For instance, in David Abel’s story about the use of energy-efficient LED streetlights in Boston, Steven J. Orfield contends that the new lights “discriminate against the elderly,” because a 90-year-old driver was more likely to be temporarily disabled from the glare than a 50-year-old driver (“Bright words, glaring worries over city’s new streetlights,” Page A1, July 4).

Are you kidding me? That a 90-year-old should even have a driver’s license is so ridiculous, it makes my 82-year-old head spin.
