Those gates go up pretty fast! I almost feel sorry for the people who wreck their cars, but it is their fault.

It looked like with the minivan, the guy didn't have his seat belt on so got his head banged and had a kid in the back seat. Apparently some people don't know how to drive where these selective barriers are used.

Next they'll be putting them on the motorways. A device along the road measures your speed, and if you're above the speed limit, these bars suddenly rise from the concrete in front of your car.

That would be fun... hehe.

It might be a fun place to hang out if you're bored and have some time to kill. Bring your video camera.

How do thses things work though? Is there someone operatiing them by monitoring the camera, lowering them whenever an authorised vehicle wishes to pass, and then quickly raising them even though he sees a car making a dash for it? Or are they automatic?

We have these barriers at my university so buses can take a short cut down a residential street, and people regularly do this.

One student wrote off his dads merc 4 days into term, and got his picture on the front page of the student union paper. I still have it somewhere I think - it pushed the engine block out of it mounts.

One year it happened 3 times in 10 weeks.

I would assume automatic. I would reckon that the bus drivers or other authorized folks have either a garage door opener kind of device or some sort of "cruise card" that a reader close by knows of its presence thus opening the gate for so long.

They have some sort or radio card thing I think to open the barriers from a distance, and there are lasers to sense when it has cleared the area.

The barriers open as it approaches from some distance (although they can't approach too fast)

There are post's next to the bollards. I belive that there is some sort of scanner that reads the bollards should go down.

I will get some pics of the ones in the city when i pop there tomorrow
