Vandalized 70w HPS Light

Vandalized 70w HPS Light

In Santa Clara, CA. I think homeless people keep throwing rocks at these lights every time they get repaired. :/

You can see the rock sitting inside of the fixture.
This might be one of the few places where a LED fixture would be good.

70w HPS lowbay underpass light?

Good quality things are awesome. Cheaply made things are not.

That's about right.

Old lighting is, and will always be, the best lighting.

Caltrans is getting slower and slower to maintaining these from what I noticed!

Yup and all of the new lights that are being put up by Caltrans are all LED.

Gotta install some germicidal lamps under there so the hobos hanging out under the bridges get skin rashes all over their bodies.

There are mercury underpass lights by my area so maybe it can work out!

I need some of those because near my area, lights get vandalized, high voltage things get smashed, and vandals also rip out classic Union Metal tags on metal poles here!

Over here they tend to put wire cages over fittings in vulnerable areas like this to stop them being smashed. There are some not far from here, I'll try and get a photo next time I see one.

Yeah wire cages seem like a good idea for underpass lights or any low-mounted vulnerable lighting that illuminates potentially high-crime areas.
