Even more information.

Here, you'll find various questions that you might want answered. Let's get started!

What does a regular streetlight look like?
Here's a cobrahead, they come in a variety of styles/variations. Also, check out The Yard Light Guide for more photos.

Why should I care about this?
You should care because this will directly affect you. Specifically, if a streetlight is near your house, then changes made to it can directly affect you by the light shining in, or glare when you're walking down the streets.

I'll take action later.
Stop procrastinating! There isn't much time left, so get started now, or very soon, as many fixtures have already been swapped out.
You can also start by getting a non-LED yardlight and by telling other people about it.

I want some scientific studies!
Here are some nice hand-picked scientific articles that show this situation in more detail:
Reduced effect of glare disability on driving performance in patients with blue light–filtering intraocular lenses
This study shows how lower blue light can increase the safety margin when making turns when driving. At first, you may be wondering how this study fits in with my website. But if you think about it, the people are experiencing lower blue light levels (because there are filters in their eyes) and this positive effect can be replicated with light sources with lower blue light levels.
Should vision influence roadway lighting design?
This article compares photopic and scotopic light levels. What I can see from this study is that even though LED works well in low-light situations, it may be a little too good at this. I have a little theory why: when a yardlight or streetlight is shining into your window, you want that light to be non-disturbing. But if your vision is scotopic, you can see details easier than if it were high-pressure-sodium (HPS). This ultimately means you're kept up at night, because all the details in your sleeping location are now visible thus exciting your mind.

What about my yardlights?
A lot of the info here applies to those too. You can go to this page for that info, and then go to Yard Light Care for a guide on yardlight maintenance.

What should I call them?
Here are some special words you can use to help SLS (Stop LED Streetlights): LEDismal LEDisaster LEDowngrade LEDisease LEDarkness

I have an arguement for LED that you haven't talked about yet. What should I do?
What you should do is contact me here and I'll probably get back to you.

I have a question about this/that/the other.
Like the question above, contact me to ask that question.
