Ten Light Poles

A bit overdone

Posted on Posted in cool pics, Musings about Light

There is an intersection nearby my home where recent improvements have been made to install traffic lights – it was only a simple four-way stop before.  I suppose traffic has increased, and the community felt that it was time that this intersection be controlled more rigorously, so…  traffic lights.  No more simple stop signs, just red/yellow/green…  PLUS TEN STREETLIGHTS.

At one intersection.

That means that there are ten poles and ten giant “cobra-head” style streetlights illuminating this intersection.  I’ve never seen a more well-illuminated intersection in my life. I suppose this will make the area safer, right?
