trash, street light


There is a streetlight directly outside my window that is so bright it is impossible to sleep.
All winter long I kept foam taped to my window to block out the light. But last night it was too hot and I had to open the window.
The light from the 10 naked, super-bright LED bulbs shining directly in my window prevented me from falling asleep until almost 3am.

There is a lot of scientific evidence coming to light (no pun intended) showing how the light emitted from LEDs actually disrupts our ability to sleep. I believe it!
It's not just annoying, it's dangerous. I frequently have to get up before 4am to do long distance driving for work.
Please remove the light, I don't want to get into an accident because a city lamp caused me to drive while drowsy.
Thank you.
