 33 Wn. App. 63, BRASHEAR v. PUGET POWER & LIGHT
He contends that when the jury found that Puget Power negligently permitted its streetlamp to become charged, it necessarily should have concluded that were it not for such leakage there would have been no electrical shock causing the fall from the pole.
Brashear should have presumed the streetlamp was energized and either avoided it in his climb or used a temporary bond between the streetlight bracket and a ground source.
The evidence shows that Brashear lost his balance and fell when he received the shock from the streetlamp, but the evidence does not support the jury's conclusion that Puget Power's negligence was not a proximate cause of the fall and resulting injuries.

Most streetlamps in Cincinnati those days were electric, but a few neighborhoods still had gas lamps.

 The Morning News - Crooks and Longarms, by Clay Risen
New York streetlamps, particularly the old, cast-iron variety, are doubly fascinating: Not only are they beautiful works of art, but they’re rare; today New York’s streets are dominated by octagonal-based, curved-mast aluminum jobs, efficient but homely grandchildren of the baroque masterpieces that dominated the city during the first half of the twentieth century.
But the single best place to see old streetlamps is City Hall Park, where the municipal government has acted as a game warden of sorts, maintaining old bishop’s crooks and twinlamps – even giving them historic status – when they might otherwise have been replaced by dull aluminum shafts.
What they’ve found is in most cases what the city missed when it replaced the old streetlamps with uniform models in the 1960s.

The continuous linear system of streetlamps accompanying the highways of America as far as one's mind could see flicked on with the setting of the October sun.
This alleviates the problem of taking semi-long car trips to either place and allowing one's mind to be left to its own devices, being left with no alternative other than to watch a streetlamp pass, only to be replaced by another one, which is replaced by another one, and so on.

The reporter saw one streetlamp left standing in the twelve blocks, and police and residents agreed there were no danger lanterns hung at night.
The excavation did not extend all the way to the sidewalk, the streetlamps had been left standing, and proper barriers had been erected at the cross streets, although not in between them along the side of the cut.
The cut was being trenched down the west side of the avenue first, and the two tracks carrying 115 trains a day had been relocated along the east side of the avenue, where they had to be crossed at grade, as they had been before.

As you ride from streetlamp to streetlamp, your eyes are forced to adjust as you move from the relatively well-lit area directly under the lamp to the softly illuminated fringe, and then reverse the process as you enter the next lamp’s pool of light.
But when you fly through on a bike, you’re moving too quickly for your pupils to react, and those dark zones are very dark indeed.
In theory, a low-power headlight should be all you need to bridge these gaps between lampposts since a single LED is more than bright enough for those areas.

Did the soldier decide on his own - or with his buddies and commander - that a direct hit of one man will scatter the crowd, make them concentrate on the wounded person, and enable a quicker escape for the stuck tank?
