street lights not turned on at night?

By lil_miss_giggles 13 July 2009 23

Hey everyone, over the last few days all lights in my street havent been turned on in the evenings.

Just wanted to find out if this is happening in your street or area?

Or if it’s just me!.

What’s Your opinion?

I don’t get why the main roads like the Drakeford Drive are all lit up at night. Now I understand why at intersections (especially uncontrolled intersections. But not the whole stretch of the road.

That is even with parts of Canberra having barely any street lights that are bright enough, the lights in Curtin are useless for motorists & pedestrians.

The lights are there to light the road. I remember when roads such as Drakeford and Ginninderra Drive didn’t have street lights along long stretches and it was very hard to see, especially off to the side of the road. High beam did wonders but with the traffic volumes we have it was next to impossible to have them. The street lights on these stretches makes a hugh difference.

Deye, smeeagain, there are the old orange lights (which shed virtually no perceptible light at all – useless unless it’s foggy! which is fairly pointless) and the new fangled orangey (slightly less orange) lights, which are far better. Some streets and bike paths still have a mixture of the two, so you can see the difference (eg the bike path between Heagney Cres Gilmore and Baskerville st Chisholm). The new ones are much safer and still penetrate the fog.

I agree, though, that I wouldn’t want to live with one of those bright white ones. They seem to be reserved for intersections or major arterials.
