Today, providing security, well-being and creating suitable working conditions for the citizens of a society is one of the most important tasks of executive bodies. Among the things that can provide the mentioned conditions is the provision and design of the lighting of passages and places such as highways, streets, crossings, recreational and tourist areas. In addition, modern life requires that social activities do not end with the end of the day and continue until late at night. The requirement for this is the presence of sufficient lighting in the passages and streets.
The increasing number of motor vehicles and the passage of pedestrians on the streets makes it necessary to have sufficient lighting for night vision and to reduce accidents and human casualties. Also, lighting the streets at night increases social security and reduces crimes and violations that may occur in the dark of the night. It should be noted that street lighting in cities has been of interest for a long time, and at any time different facilities have been used for it.
What is the purpose of street lighting?
In general, the main purpose of lighting public roads is to create a suitable environment for the traffic of vehicles, pedestrians and citizens; so that they can be seen quickly, accurately and comfortably. In the case of vehicles, sufficient lighting for the passages allows the driver to see the existing obstacles in full detail and react with confidence and in sufficient time. The following can also be mentioned: - The possibility of continuing commercial and industrial activities at night - The possibility of traveling and having fun and enjoying the beauty of the day and night
In the case of pedestrians, the roads should be clear enough so that people can easily and in full detail see their surroundings and feel safe. Also, they should be able to easily see and recognize other pedestrians, vehicles and objects in their surroundings. Also, in addition to providing the intensity of the lighting, the lighting of the passages should have an acceptable uniformity.

LED lights for street lighting:
According to the studies, using LED lights instead of regular lamps can save up to 80% of energy consumption. The design of these lamps is such that their light shines directly and only in spaces where lighting is needed, such as sidewalks, passages, crossings, etc. This prevents light pollution. Also, the high quality of these lights, like the color of the light, improves the quality of night vision. These unique features have prompted the planners of major cities to turn to the use of LED lights for lighting the streets of their cities.
As a result, according to the experiences of successful cities in the world, it can be said that if city managers are looking to reduce costs and light pollution as well as beautify their urban spaces, they should consider the use of LED lights in street lighting. Electric light or road lighting, which is also called lamp, beam or lighting for short, refers to public lighting sources at the level of roads and public places in the city. The park lighting base is one of the equipments of the lighting supply system of parks and urban green spaces and promenades.
