Varying Intensity of Street Lighting When Pedestrians Nearby

One big concern in cities is the fear many residents have of walking on dimly lit sidewalks; this is an especially big concern among older residents who often stay inside their homes. At the same time, many cities are trying to save money (and also be more energy efficient) by reducing the amount of street lighting. Could RFID technology help by allowing street lights to increase to a higher intensity setting when pedestrians are nearby, and then go back to a dimmer level after the pedestrians pass by?
