Part of the street light is lighting up houses instead of the street. As the result, houses' bedrooms are lighted up during the night, despite the thick blinders. Lights can use a cap to both prevent this issue, and to save energy. Currently, part of the energy is wasted because the light goes to the horizon and the sky. A cap can points the light towards the street, make it more brighter and more secure. And at the same time, reduce the light pollution and gives people better night sleep.
