Streetlight Panel

There's no real rule for how streetlight poles are supposed to look. Each neighborhood can have different pole designs or ornamentation (the extreme example is in Tokyo, where in one neighborhood, the poles have Ultraman-influenced designs). This is the main street that runs from my apartment down to the freeway entrance. I've been along this street a few times, but this was the first time I noticed the cutout panels at the top.

I don't know if there's a reason for the shape of the cylinder at the top of the pole. Maybe it's part of some secret communications system...
