Crawley rising bollard takes out Ford Fiesta

An automatic rising bollard in Crawley has recently taken out a car that went down a route which is only intended for buses, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.

The incident happened on the road which runs from Southgate roundabout to Broadfield, near to the bus stops right outside the Checkatrade Stadium – the home of Crawley Town FC.

The bollards stop cars and other vehicles from using the shortcut, which can only be used by Metrobus buses, with the bollard going down into the ground when a bus approaches.
