 I wouldn't mind a couple of those at each end of my street. Cool

That seemed really amature to me. It looked exactly like the concrete barriers we already have except maybe the shape was different as it appeared to be a triangle shape with the bottom end concave (so not technically a triangle and possibly not even a polygon) so as to allow it to roll under the truck as opposed to being pushed asside. Sure, it worked for that one test. Who knows how it works on a truck that is lowered or with a long metal bar welded to the front and slightly lower then the bumper to push the thing forward. It seems like they could have put more thought into how they tested it without injury.

Counter measures have to be thought up along with each advancement, it's how we stay ahead of the curve.

Video won't play for me.  Bummer.

Problem with barriers is that they can be planned for.

Then you just go around them.  Or blow one up and then drive the truck through the gap.

Then they will help keep the victims in.  Just sayin'...

That applies to all fixed defenses IMO Smiley

But planning works for both sides.............. Cool
