The poll, posted late last week on the website for this newspaper, Eastbayri.com, asks viewers their opinion of the new lights — Do you love them, loathe them or don’t really care?
The results was of 8 a.m. Tuesday …
• Loathe them — 78 votes (43.82 percent)
• Don’t really care — 62 votes (34.83 percent)
• Love them — 38 votes, (21.35 percent)
Or viewed another way, 140 of the 178 who responded voted for either Loathe them or Don’t really care — 78.65 percent.
One reader remarked, “The bulbs have never all been on at once with always a few out which looks poor. Get them working right and look after them or shut them off. ”
Said another, “To be honest, I don’t really care. As long as the residents of Tiverton and Little Compton are being treated like the red-headed stepchildren of Rhode Island with the imposition of this tax (bridge toll) to access the rest of out county and state, I refuse to ever cross that bridge.”
