Why light roads before dark?

Currently, between the end of the M2 and Canterbury on the A2 (an 8km stretch) in the middle of a sunny day, you will be able to count about 60 street lights burning bright. This has been the case for many months (maybe years).

Recently (but also previously observed) I counted 120 from the M25 junction on the A2M travelling towards London.

What is intriguing about this phenomenon is to wonder who has responsibility? Who is the person so unconcerned about their reputation that they could advertise their failings so publicly?

This person seems such an improbability that my conclusion is that actually nobody presumes themselves to be in charge.

Can anyone enlighten me

as to how these things are organised?
