They put in some LED street lights where I live and they are absolutely awful. I live on a corner, and one of the roads used to have sodium vapour lights and the other had another type which provided a fairly pleasant warm-white glow. On a clear winter's night I used to be able to see Orion's nebula without special aids. Without any public consultation or forewarning, the local council ripped the old ones out and put LED lamps in their place. The new lamp posts are more than thirty feet tall, much taller than the old ones. They produce a very harsh, cold white light which confuses the local bird population into thinking that it is daytime in the middle of the night.
