In August of 2010, the Martin County Traffic Division contacted Solar Electric Power Company (SEPCO) requesting a solution for a particular lighting application. In the recent past, the county had constructed a traffic circle on Salerno Road at the entrance to Indian River State College. The Traffic Division was worried that the newly constructed traffic circle would present an unexpected obstacle for nighttime drivers. There was virtually no lighting on the stretch of road involved; and there had never been any traffic lights, stop signs, or other traffic control devices present at that point on Salerno Road. A nighttime driver, who had not recently been on the same road during the daytime, could easily be unaware and crash into the traffic circle.
