Reading this article struck a cord with me, on the street where I live, we have been fortunate enough to have new street lighting installed.  Whilst it's brighter I must confess the glare is so bright it keeps you awake at night. I'm however relieved they will be fitting a cover over the lights to disperse the light downwards and away from directly shinning into nearby houses. 

As more and more studies are being conducted on lighting and its impact on our health we are realising just how important lighting is in your environment.
