Taking a break...

FixMyStreet is going offline shortly, probably permanently. The software is old and needs a complete rewrite, the site is being bombarded by spammers, and it is debatable whether councils are receiving and/or acting on FixMyStreet reports.

As of now, it is not possible to post new issues, or updates to published issues.

If you have submitted on FixMyStreet, thank you for playing a part in one of Aotearoa/New Zealand's early civic tech projects.

Street light directed at houses rooms, lights up bed rooms at night

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.
