Default streetlamp objects bounding box

I would like to as whether it is possible to finetune a little bit the default streetlamp set. The bounding box in the editor is huge (approx 100x100 meter) for some reason. When you place several lamps along a route than it becomes very annoying because of the overlaping boxes. You have to click several times to find exactly the lamp you are trying to select. When you have a busy airport with hundreds of objects around it becomes almost impossible.

example: StreetLamp_Type1_Single

What I do is search for all "Streetlamp", make a group of them, and then turn selection of that group off and it works like a charm.

Hello.

I didn't reply yet but we've added a task for this and the these lamp's bounding box will be fixed.
