Its in Manchester next to Marks & Sparks. Shame they didn't show the bus getting lifted by its back end. I got stuck behing a Range Rover that hit that bollard was there for 2 fcuking hours. Still it did mean i didn't have to pick passengers up

Used to have these at the main gate to a base in NI, many an RUC car was sent into the air by the gate sentry during the wee small hours.

Why are people so fcuking stupid?

If you're too stupid to read "No Entry - Except Buses" or "Warning - Automatic Bollards in Operation"

...then you shouldn't be bloody driving.


Pilacs.

No.

Bloody stupid things, someone's going to wind up with a serious neck injury after hitting them. It'll probably take a passenger winding up a paraplegic, being cared for by the NHS for the rest of their life to persuade the dopey council jobsworth twats that it's not clever and it's not funny, despite what halfwit knobs on the internet might think.

What is the point? Are they trying to stop suicide bombers? Why not have plastic bollards that deform? Why rigid steel bollards? Are they trying to injure someone? FFS. Why not just put some bar mines in the road?

Fair enough, people shouldn't try to drive over them.They're very naughty. The penalty for missing a 'No Entry' sign is usually a £30 or £50 fine, I'd have thought, not a broken neck. And people do unintentionally miss No Entry signs, especially if there's a bloody big bus obscuring them, or they're distracted by other traffic. Judging from the number of people who have been surprised and hit them, it's aforeseeable accident and Manchester council taxpayers can expect to be paying for a ginormous court award for injuries shortly.

Excluding the first one of course who reversed away from them and tried to follow the bus; dozy bint, as you'd said.

Nice
I think you will find fcuk face that the SUV and the twaat in the white van were accelerating to get through before the bollards came up....and knowing the area well, before you even get to the bollards you go through a series of signs and warnings.......Stupid should hurt!

Years ago, The fire brigade etc had a special key to lower the thing, Now its automated with car detectors.

It would be funny to rise them under some twats car and leave them there.

Maybe, I don't know the area.

But it was the passenger who staggered out of the white van clutching his head and he'd had no control of the driver's actions. The driver seems to have been saved from hurt by an air bag.

The passenger should have had his seat belt on, though.

Been on here before (BTW it's a B-Class not a SUV)

However we have them in Chester as well and it was a grand sight on the way to work on a Saturday morning to see a kebabed Chav-Wagen left over from the night before. Made the day seem worthwhile...

Not so funny, one of the local councils, (kingston I think) had them down here, problem was the electronic signs failed one night, as they worked part time and a guy on a moped was killed first thing in the morning. Bollards gone, one dead father and he tax payer out of pocket by £590,000.

My sister - Being female managed to crash into one of these whilst texting someone!

Having reversed off, she bombed off down the motorway, as part of the same journey. In hte outside lane at 70 her poor radiator that had been destroyed by said bollard gave up the last of its coolant. And her engine overheated and seized. (that dial showing oil temperature was a mystery to her at the time.)

She knocked the car into Neutral and coasted across two lanes of traffic into the hard shoulder!

- If it wasnt for the fact she was a crap driver to begin with, Id say those bollards are dangerous!

We also have a set in Ashford. There clearly marked and its a road non locals wouldnt be using. I myself have contemplated the thought of trying to nip through. Glad I didnt. To be honest it serves the drivers right. you shoud be paying attention to the road and whats ahead. If your stupid enough to accelerate harder when you see them start to rise.... Also having driven a white van I feel sure the guy in the passenger seat was saying 'Ah go on your sure to make it, it'll save at least five minutes!' Serves em right dozy knackers. As for your sister Pillager, good luck with that one!
