As far as I'm aware, most plants need a "dark" period for their overall health & well being.
Why tomatoes don't set fruit:
It has also been found that tomatoes under continuous light do not set fruit well. The key here is to avoid garden sites that are under lights that remain on all night, such as security lights or street lights.
Re-blooming Holiday Cacti
Interior lights in the home, street lights or even car lights can disrupt the required dark period and cause disappointing flowering.
‘MUMS’ the Word
If you plant mums underneath street lights you may find that they do not bloom as expected as the light will interfere with the required ‘dark’ period.
New buds will set as the nights lengthen during fall. This is due to the photoperiodic nature of poinsettia and allows them to bloom naturally around November or December. However, any stray light, such as outside street lights or household lamps, will delay or halt the re-flowering process. The plants must be kept in complete darkness for 14 continuous hours each night starting October 1 or 2 months before you would like the plant to flower.
Autumn Changes in Deciduous Trees
The effect of day length can be observed in tree leaves that grow close to street lights. These leaves stay green longer and are shed later than other leaves on the same tree, providing the tree species is sensitive to day length
