While on my honeymoon in St Thomas Virgin Isles, I came across a couple of these code violations. First picture is at a look out point for tourists. Don't lean on the rail with this weather proof installation.

And the second picture is the street lights. Virgin Islands are a US territory. They should have better inspections if any at all.
