Bollard Barriers Stopped the Times Square Carnage


A television station in Los Angeles makes a point to remember about the chaotic scene in New York’s Time Square in which a speeding, careening car was brought to a halt by security bollards.

One woman was killed and 23 other people were injured in the incident. But “Investigators,” the TV report added, “said the tragedy could have been a lot worse if not for one Southern California company that makes the steel security barriers that stopped the careening Honda.”

The bollards were made by Calpipe Security Bollards based in Compton, CA, and were installed in late 2016. For its part PRO Barrier engineering offers the B-Cube basic bollard barrier which can be deployed in many creative ways.
