They don’t understand why the shops need to be lit up at night.

It is incomprehensible to us why so many neon signs light up at night. And for us, this social activity allows us to translate our words into actions
– pointed out Kevin Ha, a member of On the Spot. The team respects private property as much as possible. According to Ha, “one of the essence of the idea is not to harm anything, as we operate as a harmless movement”.Our image is an illustration: parkour practitioners use the urban built environment to demonstrate neck-breaking jumps (Photo: Unsplash/Liam Shaw) In France, a law was passed in 2013 that obliges shops to turn off their lights between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m. – those who fail to do so face a fine of 750 euros. The provision was expected to allow the emission of 250,000 tons of carbon dioxide per year – which, by the way, corresponds to the annual consumption of roughly 750,000 French households.
There is no reason for a shop to be lit up like this at night (Photo: Unsplash/Ty Koh) The law originally applied to municipalities with fewer than 800,000 inhabitants, but this week the French government announced that the provision would be extended to the entire country. Despite this, the enforcement of the law was not really enforced, so to this day there are many shops that do not turn off the lights at night. The members of On the Spot protest against this with their actions and hope to draw attention to the problem with the videos. There is no problem with views, the video embedded in the article has already been viewed by more than 133 thousand people. We have more to tell you, you can find all the interesting things here!
