Bollards Protect People and Property
Cars leaving the road way are a hazard to pedestrians in the area. There are various ways to protect citizens from this type of danger. One is a fixed bollard that can impede a vehicle from jumping the curb and striking a pedestrian. There are countless examples where bollards have protected, or could have protected pedestrians from being struck by a vehicle. Intersections aren’t the only areas where security bollards can be used to protect pedestrians. Outdoor seating areas at restaurants are good example of a high risk area to accidental vehicle intrusion. Many seating areas at restaurants and bars have been accidentally run through when a driver puts the car in drive instead of reverse.
