Good Outdoor Lighting
Shine light down to where its needed, not up or sideways.
Dont overlightuse lighting levels that are appropriate
for the situation.
Turn off lights when theyre not needed or use motion sensors.
Reduce the number of parking lot lights that are illuminated
Use energy-efficient lights and fixtures (a 25-watt focused light
can often do the same job as a 100-watt unfocused light).
