Street Light Replacement - Chicago Crimefighter (1 of 3)

Click to view full size image

A new streetlight with a davit arm replacing a relatively new light on a truss arm. The new fixture is a GE M-250 based Crimefighter similar to the current, but has a PowerDoor and is equipped with a higher wattage lamp and ballast. According to the City of Chicago website, "new residential street lighting systems have been installed on over 1,600 blocks throughout the city. The systems include aluminum poles, brighter roadway fixtures and pedestrian access fixtures."

those truss arms were replacements for downed poles...I remember those, I even saw few but not many have the GE M-400A2 crimefighter version. I also saw one davit arm with a GE M-400A2 crimefighter too (it was a taller davit arm though)

it's insane in my city because certain neighborhoods have 200 watt HPS Fixtures mixed in with lower wattage fixtures...and mind you these aren't very busy neighborhoods.

Personally i think that all Lamp Bans are idiotic,the idea of telling us we cant use this lamp type just cause its less efficent is highly communist in nature...really what good is it going to do?

Does GE still make the crimefighters?

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.
