I think it has more to do with the color of the cones and the fact that it indicates to oncoming traffic that the vehicle is parked and not moving

Nope.. it is policy, as JRscooby stated. Has little to nothing to do with other traffic.

You ever see van or pickup setting with cones by the corners? Do you imagine somebody thinks it is easier to see the cone than the vehicle, so people won't run into the van? No. It is because it has been proven if a driver walks around their vehicle before they get in they are much less likely to hit something when they start to move.


Bummer this happened, and has been said....every....single.....one of us has had 'awchit' moments and screwed something up. Hate to see it.

And I'm on the side of..could always wish something had been better marked, etc, but in the end, I own it 100%. Bollards are a pain, always imperfect, and there for a reason. No different than curbs. How many cars have torn off their front spoiler because the curb was just a bit to tall, or whatever. Are we supposed to nerf/flag those too? No, it's on us, the driver.

And, completely objective. Yes flags on “short” obstructions does increase their visibility.
That’s why that method is widely employed in many applications.

Slightly less objective, surprised someone hasn’t designed a kids backpack with an auto deploying dune buggy flag.
The Karen’s of the world would eat it up!

Nobody's saying to remove the posts, just design them using a little common sense. I'll bet your "99.99%" figure is quite high. I'd imagine they've been hit plenty of times due to their faulty design.



I admit, I'm using trump numbers, but if I had some way to prove it I would bet it averages at least 1000 uses between impacts. And the same in-attention that leads to impact there could in another time/place impact a child. How do we re-design them?


You can train a child. You can't train red pipes sticking out of the ground. [emoticon]

I think I like that idea better than the school backpack I saw at Christmas. The 6 YO was so proud he could unzip, pull out of a pocket, pull over his head and have the meat of his body sandwiched in Kevlar

If the child lives long enough.
I thought the job of the red pipe was to train drivers not to run over the valuable stuff.

A. ???

B. No, pipes can't 'train' anyone, however they can 'prevent' drivers from damaging whatever it is they are set there for.

Time to drop this whole thing. Using 'Trump numbers' and Trump logic only works with those like-minded.

Pipe can't train? Are you saying the OP is likely to hit it again?
I bet he, and many that looked at pictures will pay more attention to them for a while.

lol, that just turned south and took a nose dive. Where did that come from??

Disagree; OP laid it all out there so each, and everyone of us, could self reflect and ponder life. Our choices, actions and consequences. No one has to be like minded and agree...otherwise, we'd all live in dumps like Seattle..if I understand your logic.

Great thread! Thanks for the eye opener OP!

Read JRscooby's previous post -- that's exactly where it came from, and my response was intended for him, not the OP.

Try to keep up [emoticon]
