Purple street lights have come to Vancouver, WA. Oldie but a goodie thread.
I remember hearing about these a while back but they were always from somewhere else. I heard everything from "city ordered wrong bulbs" to "scanning people for vax status" as an explanation for the ones in other cities. Who knows?

They were located on SR-500, between Stapleton and St. Johns. Very noticeable. I wonder what the explanation will be for these ones in Vancouver, Wa.

It's just another way to make everyone a purple-headed antifa-democrat-nwo cult member.

So far, the only thing I've seen close to an 'official narrative' for these. Article is a year old, but explains that the lights are simply defective and need to be replaced!

“Over the past few years, Evergy has installed LED streetlights in communities where we maintain streetlights,” said Gina Penzig, a spokeswoman for Evergy. “Some of the lights have a defective component that is allowing too much of the blue-to-purple light spectrum to shine through.”

Hmmmm....

I was driving at the time so not much star gazing. Also, it's the Northwest, the sky is rarely visible past the clouds.

I will keep an eye out. It's weird that like ten would all become in need of replacement the same night. I drive this route often and it's the first time I have seen this. I will look for city repair trucks.

Yeah, it's a weak explanation IMO. They all had the same fault and experienced failure at the same time in various cities? 10 in one night as you witnessed?

That said, we can only speculate for now. It seems there hasn't been much of that on this topic (though I did find a reddit thread from last year that discussed it that I can't link here).

Something to keep an eye on for sure.

this.
the article below is referencing bathrooms, but you get the idea.

Here's why you see blue or purple lights in some Vancouver public washrooms

Have you ever accessed a public washroom at a Vancouver business and noticed the lights were tinted blue or purple?

The special lights have been installed to dissuade drug use.

The reasoning behind the blue or purple-hued lighting is that it's harder to see superficial veins in these colours of light, explains The BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) in a 2019 document.

"Blue lights are sometimes installed in public washrooms to discourage injecting drug use. The lights are intended to visually obscure superficial veins, thereby making it difficult to inject drugs intravenously," they state in the policy position paper.
