Working in my secret underground lair, my research into localized EMP pulse creation continues unabated.....

I wish you'd hurry up with that.

Are you actually living in the city of Plattsburgh or in a town ect. near the city?I live in a sub-division in a city, but found out that the "city" actually did not own the streets I live in, the developer owned it. Maybe some leverage there? In my case I did find out who the city engineer was and sent him an email of the lights shining into my bedrooms ect. and lighting up my house. He did come out with some kind of shield that did help some.  Neighbor down the street painted the one side of it black....it was on "his" property.Anyway, get something to block the straight line sight from the lamp. I have used a 9' patio umbrella turned on it's side to block stray light from hitting my scope in the yard.

Another option might be a red rider bb gun, with a compass in the stock and this thing that tells time.

Vandalism is never a solution!  The above clearly violates the TOS.

Oh, and by the way - it's Red Ryder - not "Rider".

Try planting some bamboo in your front yard.  Some bamboo can grow over 50 ft tall in less than 1 year.

Funny, I get posts deleted for this type(guns,vandalism) of talk. Really, just call the company that deals with it and explain that they are violating your rights/freedom, and/or hindering your ability to get a good night's sleep. I know what I would do, 'cause I have already done it. They will keep putting it back until you let 'em know that is is not OK with you.

We fix our light problem with a small cheap laser. When ever i view, I take a small red laser (the one i use to torment my cat) mount it to a chip clip and aim it at the photo cell of the street light....works like a charm. When I'm done observing it returns to normal operations with 30 seconds. Just sayin

I had no luck with a bright green laser. Had it right on top of the sensor. Maybe it's will work with a red laser?Also, I bugged the city engineer a lot and he finally came out and put some make shift shield that fits on the side where it lights up my house. Not a bad solution.Bamboo huh, might have to try that?
