I agree with this guy's presentation 100%. Sodium streetlights just look weird and are pretty bad for nighttime safety. A whiter light is far more beneficial and better suited to our nighttime vision.

A long time ago I knew a guy who was on the G-E team that developed their high pressure sodium lamps under the Lucalox brand. They were better than low pressure lamps with a tiny bit more energy in the green-blue spectrum, enabled by the presence of mercury. Still not as good as modern white LEDs though.

Sorry Raggie, without a particular reason to watch this video, other than you liked it, 38 seconds into it I checked to see how long it lasted. 28 minutes!... too long for me.

Sorry, I bailed. So I can't comment.

I watched the entire video but not at the same time. It was good if a bit long winded. One courtesy CPF members can extend is to give a synopsis with the link, such as; Sodium light does not work so well with night time vision on roads, cooler LED does. Of course that does not do the video justice, but...

The person who did this informative video also talked about highway reflective tape/signage and how it works. That was fascinating and thanks to the CPF member who provided that link some time ago.
