Don't touch the metal conduit, call the street lighting department instead!

Wow, it looks like its been used as a trash can too, I see cigarette, paper. That looks scarey~~~did anyone call the city to tell them of this? All it would need is some poor dog to lift his leg right there, or some curious little kid passing by...

Shouldn't there be in there a pig tailed light bulb socket used incorrectly as an edison screw in fuse holder? Seen that done in New York City streetlight bases. [Linked Image]

Bad/exposed wiring not withstanding, I wouldn't want to be anywhere near this rusted-out base if there's a heavy streetlight pole attached to it [Linked Image].

I just saw the same thing in Atlanta Ga on the GA TECH campus on 4 light poles in a row!
It's kinda funny because I was in Atlanta to take my Ga class 2 electrical exam when I noticed it

It wouldn't surprise me if they was a "TRASH CAN" sign with an arrow pointing down to that base.
