The Los Angeles Bureau of Street Lighting has implemented a new online tool to report failed street lights - and it's really good! Go to http://bslonline.lacity.org/apps/slomap.html, click "Find Address." Enter the address closest to the light you are reporting, and up pops a map with every street light marked! Click the marker, and a little balloon pops up identifying the post type and identification number of the light, along with a submission form that allows you to describe the problem and report it to LABSL. Many thanks to LABSL and to Ben Seinfeld of Council District 4 for sending out an email blast about this big improvement over 311 for reporting this common occurrence
