Ok my line or outside experiance is limited.... But is the pole too short? Looks like 54'? if thats a 40' there next to it. Secondary and street lighting side too high? Both? Isn't there a rule for seperation of so many feet? Any of the linemen out there got comments for that?

Am sure they should not be wrapped around aech other like that...

Utility systems are often designed and installed under the National Electrical Safety Code, published by IEEE.

[In California, the document is General Order 95 for overhead systems, at ]www.cpuc.ca.gov/Published/Graphics/13352.PDF]
