A staple of San Jose aesthetics, yellow sodium lights might soon become a thing of the past. According to the Mercury News, "the city is looking to replace its 62,000 streetlights with new light-emitting diode (LED) versions that will cast a white, warm glow, could cut energy costs in half, and will use state-of-the-art technology to vary their intensity and timing." The yellow lights, installed in the 1980s and used to reduce energy, have been ridiculed for not only their queasy amber color, but also their similarity to yellow traffic signals.The city plans on having the lights changed by 2022 (?!).
