Police were embarrassed when their car got impaled on traffic bollards. Members of the public used their mobile phones to take pictures of two officers while they waited for a recovery vehicle to remove the vehicle from the bollards. The bollards situated in the middle of Manchester have written off many cars since they were installed six years ago. The cops were driving along a restricted road when the electronically operated items rose up under their unmarked car.
Automatic Bollards from Carpark Barriers & Turnstiles limit vehicle access to a specific location, and can easily be lowered when passage is authorised, typically within three seconds. They are failsafe in both their retracted and extended positions and are a vital element in restricting entry to many outdoor areas of offices or businesses. Automatic bollards are highly resistant to atmospheric elements, and are housed inside compartments set into the road surface. They feature exceptional resistance to an impact if a car strikes them.
