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...
