How to mitigate sketchy activity in parking lot next door?

I have a laundromat next door to my house, and while I’m totally fine with the normal traffic in the day, it seems to be a drug marketplace/sketchy hangout at night.

The business closes at 8pm, is it within my legal rights to get a motion detecting light to blast the lot after that time of night? It will not interfere with any other neighbors, there are only residences directly across from my front door, and I’m planning to put the light on the side of my house facing the lot.
