"...It has to mean something. Because if it doesn't, that's even scarier. Streetlights and street lighting are a city's deep infrastructure. If they can break in such a weird and unexpected way, so can everything else."

That is telling everything...

Otherwise as usual: Cheepeese c$$p takes over because bean counters just go for the lowest price tag, not matter what...

Don’t even get me started on the tin-foil hat nonsense, the amount of BS is pretty unbelievable… like they have lasers on them now.

I wonder which LED manufacturer will earn the guinness world record of most recalled fixtures: Leotek, Acuity, or Cooper? I’ll be quiet.

Why? To me this (along the "Flat Earth" and similar) is a great source of amusement and laughter... :-D

Well, they wanted the things; none of this would have happened if people had stuck with proper traditional light sources ::)

Yeah some of the "theories" floating around on the internet regarding these are pretty wild.

The problem seems to be limited to AEL/Acuity luminaires from what I've noticed. My area started using LED in late 2009/2010 and I've yet to see a LED luminaire fail in such manner. Granted AEL/Acuity LED luminaires are rare in my city.
