AMA recommends that color temperature of outdoor lighting at night, especially street lights, should be less than 3000K. Color temperature measurement is based on the content of the blue, green, yellow and red light source. The higher the color temperature, the whiter and brighter the light, and the more the content of blue light, which will therefore generate glare, affecting the accuracy and safety of driver’s vision.

AMA also said that blue light is more likely to inhibit the body’s secretion of melatonin at night than other light sources, which may lead to sleep time decrease, sleep quality deterioration, day of sorts and even obesity.
