Poor thing. That refractor is going to fall and kill someone.

1 gust of wind + 1 unlucky pedestrian = disaster.

What about the nonexistent top housing?

Now that I look at this picture again I noticed that this was externally fed. The wires are taped to the arm. I am guessing the installer drilled a hole in the side of the fixture to feed the wires through. This may have compromised the housing causing cracking which led to what we see here in this picture.

Probably from a vehicle impacting the pole. The shock of the impact might cause the housing to crack off at the slipfitter like this.

There could have been slight cracks near the slip fitter, and the weight of the ballast bouncing the housing would have caused it to break.

Back in the day, when LPS fixtures of 180W were common here, most were fitted on aluminium poles with a huge 90ยบ bend (not sure what they are called), when a vehicle struck them, it would cause the fixture to bounce enough to snap off the reflector/lamp/refractor assembly, leaving only the ballast compartment in place. They were the last generation of Philips 180W LPS fixtures. In the later years, such breakage was usually fixed with a replacement 250W cobra head in HPS.
