Energy Efficient Traffic Lights Have Side Effect

Recent traffic lights that have been installed in Wisconsin cities are causing some unforeseen problems.  The problems have recently began to show with the winter weather.  Snow and ice are beginning to accumulate on traffic lights that use LED lights.  These lights were selected because they are energy efficient and can save money with their use.  However,  the LED lights do not produce much heat which has resulted in ice accumulating on many of the signals.  It is reported that some lights can not be seen during winter weather,  which is causing a headache for many cities and law enforcement across the state.

Officials have stated that they are looking into several solutions that could fix this problem,  but for now the only fix seems to be to scrape the traffic lights by hand.
