Street light interference phenomenon
Street light interference (SLI) is a term coined by paranormal author Hilary Evans to denote the claimed ability of individuals to turn street lights or outside building security lights on or off when passing near them. Believers in SLI allege that they experience it on a regular basis with specific lamps and more frequently than chance would explain; however, SLI has never been demonstrated to occur in a scientific experiment, and those who claim the ability have been found to be unable to reproduce the effect on demand.
Very often, SLIders also report that they tend to have an odd effect on other electronic devices.
Appliances such as lamps and TVs go on and off without being touched.
Light bulbs constantly blow when the SLIder tries to turn them off or on.
Volume levels change on TVs, radios, and CD players.
Watches stop working.
Children's electronic toys start by themselves when the SLIder is present.
Credit cards and other magnetically encoded cards are damaged or erased when in their possession.

i am sure i has previously read an ATS thread with this exact premise
regurgitation , plaigarism or ............................ ?
just dont think about it
mportantly, expensive does not equate to high quality. The argument might be made it increases the chances of higher quality, but nowadays it usually refers to prettier packaging.
Changing out every bulb in a house on a weekly basis is not my idea of fun.

This happens to me, but usually with a few particular street lights in my town. I don't know what causes it. I know they're not motion censor because I've watched many cars, people and animals walk under these particular street lights and they don't go off or turn on. But I also just can't believe it's anything to do with me. I have to ask myself that if it's something I'm somehow subconsciously doing, why doesn't it happen to every street light? There's one street light that very often will turn off as soon as I begin to approach it and when I get a certain distance away, it turns back on. If it's already off, it will often turn on when I approach. So weird. One day I need to try to get it on camera, haha.
