I recent watched a TV news story about Pasco residents who are unhappy with the city's decision to replace high sodium streetlights with new induction sreetlights.
The problem is that these new lights only light up the area immediately underneath the light, whereas the old lights illuminated a much larger area surrounding the pole.
A city official was interviewed and said that although many residents have complained about these new lights, the city did not plan to change back because the positives outweigh the negatives. These new lights are saving the city $40,000 a year. Yes, but does that outweigh our safety?
