LED Streetlights – The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is planning to install cool-white LEDs that have a strong blue-wavelength component. The American Medical Association has warned that blue-rich LED street lights cause hazardous glare and are potentially harmful to human health because of their disruptive effect on circadian sleep cycles. To mitigate these potential problems, the AMA recommends that roadway lighting have “the lowest emission of blue light possible.” ANCs 4B and 5B and the Palisades Citizens’ Association have endorsed warm-white LED street lights that comply with the AMA’s recommendations. In addition, more than 150 people from multiple wards have signed petitions expressing concern about blue-rich LEDs and calling for installation of warm-white LEDs. Representative: Wayne Savage, D.C. Street Light Task Force.
