Strange Street Lights

Discussion in 'The Pub' started by Kraven, Jun 24, 2006.

  1. Just wondering if anyone can explain this for me.
    For the last couple of months a strange occurance has been happening in the local vicinity of ME!! :shock:

    Whats happening is whenever i travel at night under street lamps (In the car or on the bike) they turn off as i go under them or just ahead of me up the road and it's becoming more and more frequent (2-3 times a night now).
    Someone told me it could mean i'm a witch (But i think she might be one anyway so i don't believe her).

    This is a serious question though, Is there actually an explanation for this or is it pure randomness and it happens all the time but i just happen to be noticing it because it freaked me out? (If that makes sence :LOL: )
  2. Does this only happen on dark, foggy nights?
    Or under the light of a full moon?
  3. Your lights are probably pointing a little skyward. Sure you haven't been stacking on some kilos lately? :p :LOL:
  4. Even the God's don't like Honda's! :p :LOL:
  5. Its got to do with the cold .Apparantly they switch off when they get to a certain temp so as not to crack the lens or the light. The lens is the glass cover :wink:
  6. Thats only cause they shine enough on their own they dont need help like those bloody spewsukies :wink: :LOL: :LOL:
  7. biatch :LOL: i cant believe you posted this.... but hey, i never knew they switched off to protect themselves from the cold!
  8. [/quote]but hey, i never knew they switched off to protect themselves from the cold![/quote]

    you mean girls or street lights :p
  9. Where I live there's a streetlight that switches off when you walk on a certain part of a footpath near it. Maybe something to do with dodgy underground cabling??
  10. The cold you recon :? That would explain why it's only really been really happening in the last few months.
  11. Kraven - maybe it's some guy in a control room playing with your mind! LOL
  12. Hey that happens to me too... wtf??

    No seriously it does.

    It's even lost its surprise factor now...

    Matt - you suggesting it's a PE cell issue?
