How well do you know the Code? Think you can spot violations the original installer either ignored or couldn't identify? Here's your chance to moonlight as an electrical inspector and second-guess someone else's work from the safety of your living room or office.

I found this luminaire on Newbury street in Boston. It’s quite obvious that improper methods and materials were used to support it on a box exposed to the outside elements. The raceway feeding this luminaire was rusted away, which left an installation waiting to become an accident.
