Brightening my morning drive

By thy_dungeonman - 23 February 2010 7

This morning at around 1o:30am I noticed the streetlights around Waramanga and halfway up the hill on the parkway heading north were all on. This seemed quite unusual as the sun was well and truly up and it was bright day. Perhaps we have too much electricity and we need to burn some off.

What’s Your opinion?

This exciting thread needs to close with the observation that blocks of lights are often turned on during the day for maintenance etc, it being somewhat easier to wander around and note which lights aren’t actually on than climbing each pole and testing the globes individually.

This has been a really exciting thread and I hate to see it’s demise but off it must go to sleep while we all concentrate on threads that matter.

Heaven Forbid, perhaps they were on for testing, or the sensor was stuffed, or the street light turner on-er accidently turned them on, maybe theres a thousand reasons they could be on, but was a thread really neccessary wondering why the streetlights were on the other day?

In Layman’s terms, the street lights have a sensor that detects daylight and turns them on and off. I’d say the sensor has seen it’s end and needs replacement. Nothing to be concerned about.

Maybe to make up for the street lights out along Barry Dr and Ginninderra Dr this side of town? lol
