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...

Who has to service that cobra-head light fixture?

Not me...

[In California, the document is General Order 95 for overhead systems, at ]]
