Someone got hit...

Someone got hit...

This is a 150w HPS AEL model 13 that appears to have been hit by something. It took a chunk out of the pole, including the ID tag so no reporting it. It lost its refractor and the arm is bent, too. It still works, hopefully it doesn't fall on someone.

If you call customer service and give them the nearest street address and tell them the pole was hit and falling over they'll have it fixed in no time.

To resist is to piss in the wind, anyone who does will end up smelling.

Just did and they told me they already know and are going to send someone out to fix it within the next few days. There was a big snowstorm here last night and they have had several of these incidents happen from plows.

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

Got some really bad plow drivers there! Here they just dig up patched potholes and now down sign posts.

Update: This actually got replaced about a week after I posted this, pole and all. The new light is a 150w HPS M250R2 with a drop acrylic refractor. I have no idea if it's new or they used an old one from a changeout elsewhere, but hopefully it stays up for a while. I am pretty sure it's used though since they used to use FCO M250R2's for new installations.

Nice, that they reuse HPS fixtures. CPE doesn't do that, unless the customer who owns the lights wants LED. Today I saw a new HPS installation by CPE, at a small intersection.
