can someone explain the benefit of sideways lights?



I have noticed them in other towns, but this is the first time I've noticed them here.

1 of 2 reasons more than likely:

1. Horizontal lights tend to fair a little better in high wind situations because they're not as "dangly." They're less pendulum-like when hung horizontal. Many towns in Florida have horizontal lights because of this.
2. The power lines are probably a little lower than the old ones and this would allow the same overhead height as to not interfere with large trucks

You might wonder why there's a large gap at 14th and Greenville Blvd...

But I don't see this happening anytime soon since they are replacing the railroad tracks and they remodeled the animal care on 14th st. They need to redo their plans and come up with better options...

Back in the 80's they could of upgraded Memorial and made the 10th street connector so we could have a perfect highway system with a beltline.

They've had plenty of room to do it, I don't know what they were thinking.

Use this map to tell that the roads are the most used.

To further confuse a populace that is clearly confused about how green lights and 4 way stop signs work. Not to mention the people that don't have a clue of what a yield sign means at a roundabout. Hint: It's not a stop sign.

A Marshalls and Michaels will be locating in that building.

Dickinson & Allen/Greenville Blvd.
Maybe because it's such a wide intersection???

Sideways lights are usually found (and look better) in a downtown setting, as in Greenville, SC.
