- Bollards enforce and manage traffic flow 24 hours a day.
Bollards can serve several functions in traffic management:
Bollards Create Livable Streets
- Protect property from vehicles
- Divert traffic
- Close off areas for pedestrian only use
Bollards and security planters help make streets safe for pedestrians, children, seniors and bicyclists. Streets become safer and more livable. Street side restaurants and shops, street fairs and sidewalk service cafes become possible. Bollards and planters can be used to close streets to create plazas and areas of refuge from the city traffic. These protected areas give people the ability to relax and enjoy the outdoors in an outside "room". These "livable streets" can play a vital role in attracting pedestrians and business to an area.Bollards Protect Bike Lanes, Paths and Greenways
