Street lighting started a few centuries back. Even before Edison first introduced his commercial lamp, light was invented and the need for outdoor lighting was identified, passing through different phases and stages until it reached the current models of street lighting. Street lighting is probably the most important public services provided by municipalities and other public authorities. Street lighting is one of the indication of nation’s progress level and development. It improves safety for drivers, riders, and pedestrians. It is an important public service that gives safety and secure especially at nighttime. It ensures safety to every citizen around the world. Street Lighting has several important role to play such as reducing risk of nighttime accidents, assisting in the protection of property, discouraging crime and vandalism, marking residents feel secure and especially enhancing the appearance of area after dark. Street lighting can provide safety advantages at locations near intersections and can improve safety for pedestrians, particularly at crossing points. These lights have the ability to keep the cityscape lit at night. Well-lit roads assist both drivers and pedestrians to navigate easily, alert them to approaching vehicles and possible obstacle. LED Street Lighting is the future of street lighting. There are many reasons why LED Street Lights are consider more when it comes to street and area lighting. This is because not only LED lights are environmentally friendly, but they also have a higher output compared to conventional lights. These lights are also free from hazardous chemicals such as mercury and lead which give out toxins. LED lights are progressing rapidly and can results significant energy saving. The use of these LED enable enhanced performance at lower cost for different lighting and traffic conditions. These advantages of LED streetlights range from cost savings, higher quality of light and overall better efficiency. It is quickly becoming the light for all uses: residential, commercial, and industrial. The purpose of standard street lighting design is to demonstrate guidelines and practices to be followed by engineers in designing street lighting systems. Benefits of this design includes providing engineers with direction resulting in increased productivity by streamlining the design process, and increased efficiency by establishing a centralized source of up-to-date reference for current standard and procedures. To overall quality in street lighting designs will be enhanced by requiring engineers to adhere to national’s current design and construction policies.
