WHAT! What makes it special its a merc! But of course me and you live in areas where there's a LOT of mercs...so it's less special to us, but something to be proud to be in....it's more special to those in a 100% HPS areas!!! Now a merc would be VERY special inside CHICAGO!

Or Denver. Cause Denver is pretty much all HPS. Never seen a Merc light on the streets in Denver. EVER.

In my neighborhood it's all HPS, but there are so many of these M400R3's around, it's kind of boring.

We still have some mercs in Rhode Island. Mostly on the side streets. The HPS invasion for the 250 and 400w HPS began in the 70's, but the side roads still got new mercs until the 90's when the T&B 113 took over.

Mercs are a rare sight in Ontario even in the smaller towns. The only places I know that still use them is St Jacobs, Midland, and Niagara Falls.
