I think if they installed that in the U.S. it would be vandalized fairly quickly.

What does the sign say? "Obstacle in the way"?

This poller makes you wait 3 minutes, then it lets a few vehicles through, and then you have to wait another 3 minutes.

And this is supposed to accomplish... what? :eyebrow:

It was vandalized recently. People hate it.

To make people take a 2 mile detour. This road serves a rural area to a new development which has a shopping center. So if you want to get groceries, you have to take a significant detour because some nimby's are afraid of too much traffic in front of their house.

Actually, now that I think about it, if it were installed in Oklahoma or Texas, you would see massive ruts on either side of the poller, as the traffic would just drive thru the ditch in their trucks!
