With a little thinking they could aim lights better. Light pollution is a constant peeve of mine. The sports park the city rammed down this neighborhood has big lights that shine right in the windows, and they "forget" to turn them off.
Now they are finding out that the new LED traffic lights don't melt frost and snow, so go blank in storms. And they don't just replace worn out lights or bulbs, they take down good new ones and install the new expensive ones.
Same for street signs; someone figured out small case letters are easier to read than the old all capitals, so instead of using the new style when replacing signs, they took ALL thenm down and put up new ones
Isn't the old saying: "Penny wise, pound foolish"?
just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they are not watching you
