      This was done along the road by my house as well. They certainly do illuminate the road better. Unfortunately, they also create more glare from my viewing area in the barnyard behind my house. There are two of them I can't occlude by  setting up in a spot that has a tree or other obstruction between me and them.

      LEDs worked for me. Lost two very annoying high pressure sodiums, got nicely shielded LEDs instead. Hope it works for you!

      My backgarden is a lot darker since the lights were changed in the streets surrounding.

      I've heard that you can't filter that type of light, but I don't notice it.

      Love to say my imaging has improved but I need the weather to improve first !
