What is Street light
A street light, also known as a light pole, street lamp, light standard, or lamp standard is a raised source of light on edge of a road or path, which can used to promote security in urban or city areas. Street light can use to increase the quality of life by artificially extending the hours in which it is light so that night activity can take place. The use of street lighting can be considered as a protective method which provides economic and social benefit to the public and whole the country. Street lighting is an essential public service that provides a safer environment at nighttime to the driver as well as the pedestrians on the road. While this service is commonly available in developed countries, there is a shortage of proper street lighting facilities in many areas in developing countries due to lack of financial resources. The lack of adequate light at night has given rise to poor living conditions and as such, street crimes, and other mishaps are commonplace.
Ancient people were concerned with the dangers of a dark street. Before the appear of the street light, ancient Chinese sometimes carried fireflies in transparent or semi-transparent containers and used them as (short-term and movable) street light. This kind of street light is known as the ‘lanterns’. Firefly lanterns were also being widespread to another country such as the ancient India. But these were short term solutions with a lot of weakness such as the fire in ‘lanterns’ will easily extinguish if it is being blow by strong wind. Beside that, ‘laterns’ also cause fire disaster if it does’t be use properly, and this will end up with loss of property and life. Then, in the 1930s, Low-pressure sodium-street light was introduced in Europe. After that, high-pressure sodium (HID) street light being invented in 1965, and it brought superior color and efficiency compared to their low-pressure predecessors. After 40 years, which is in 2006, the first led street light is being introduced in United Kingdom. Due to rapid grow of LED, HID streetlights may soon be just as extinct as the ‘lanterns’ in the ancient.
Street light function
Street lighting ensures safety to literally every citizen in any country by providing guidance and direction across the vast territories throughout any street in the country. Citizens have grown accustomed to driving the streets, rural roads and busy urban thoroughfares, relying on improved visibility and safety afforded them by generous lighting conditions provided by several street light standards of the roadways. Similarly, the safety and ability to maneuver along walkways and sidewalks, in both congested and remote areas, is tremendously enhanced for pedestrians and cyclists. Street lights must be designed therefore to minimize glare and render enhanced colour recognition to meet people’s visual needs in observing objects.
Important of Street Light
At nighttime, when there is no street light, it will cause most of the activity cannot be carry out. This is because during night, it is the time that we cannot see the thing clearly. So, streets then and now are places that need adequate lighting. You can’t have sunshine in the night but you can have street lights. Street lighting is a boon to drivers, riders, and pedestrians. Ask a woman to walk a dark street without lights, in the dead of the night. Her response will tell you why street lights are so important. So, street light is important to public, because it:
1) Elimmination in night time accidents and economic loss
2) Aid to police protection and enhanced sense of personal security
3) Facilitation of smooth traffic flow
4) Promotion of business activities and the use of public interactions during night hours.
5) Improves safety for drivers, riders, and pedestrians on the road
Eco-Friendly Street Light
The electrical energy consumption of street lighting constitutes an important part of total energy consumption.Saving energy in street lamps is therefore important for total energy savings. It is known that street lighting levels are excessive in many cases. For instance, in the case of low traffic volumes, the lighting levels are excessive and could be reduced so that energy savings can be achieved. On the other hand, in specific situations and for traffic safety reasons, light levels should be increased even in the case of low traffic volume. Reductions in energy consumption through the installation of modern lighting equipment, control and management practices have a direct impact on the level of greenhouse gas emissions from street lighting. Reductions in greenhouse gas emissions are directly related to reductions in energy consumption; hence the potential savings are of the same order and vice versa.
