Road lighting is designed with a goal of achieving the related standards on luminance, uniformity ratio and glare. Unless the luminaire with LID which is perfect for road conditions is used, a situation which fails to meet lighting standards may occur. The study examined the relationship of maximum spacing with average road luminance and longitudinal uniformity. Based on the result of the analysis, this study evaluated luminaire with what characteristics are suitable to achieve lighting requirements of the roads and suggested methods of selection for luminaires depending on the size of the road.
