Just motion sensors in our long driveway and on two sheds. On, then off when they aren't used.

Motion detector on our truck and in our back yard. Too much theft going on in the neighborhood.

Porch light is a motion sensor. Little solar lights on my back patio. I love to see the stars and it's getting harder with more people here. I agree with reducing light pollution.

We live out in the country, Coyotes, bobcats even cougars, of course I have big lights and I feel it is outrageous that anyone could regulate outside lighting! We are letting dangerous repeat offenders out on low to no bail to kill innocent people and we concerned about house lights? Thats insane!

No OS Lights on at my place unless I need them. Few neibors with "security" lights. Worst offender is Sisters School District. Parking and grounds lights on all night long every night. Forget star gazing here.

Your comment is confusing. You say you don't have more lights on outside, the news article is stating the county wants exactly what you're doing, and you're upset?

I have one porch light that is turned on once it’s dark and turned off once I go to bed. It’s only on for a few hours. Light pollution has direct and negative effects on energy consumption, human health, disruption to the ecosystem and wildlife, and even crime and safety.

There is no clear evidence that increased outdoor lighting deters crimes. It may make us feel safer, but has not been shown to make us safer. Most property crime occurs in the light of the day. Some crimes like vandalism and graffiti actually thrive on night lighting. https://www.darksky.org/

Gabe, my dude, you have to stop screaming like a mad man about Biden and Democrats. You do nothing for your cause. It's so disappointing to see a grown man behave the way you do.

Completely unresponsive to the question. Apparently, no problem on this site.

You can't afford to go to a public park or watch the free firework show? Maybe get a job, hippy.
