    Worse when they attack you from above... I was running across the car park outside work and being a bit dim, ran under the barrier was thinking "funny, there's no barrier today" then saw it hurtling down the way. Thankfully I move like Ali, so it missed my cranium by about 0.02mm...

    Could have been embarrassingly funny...

    Horizontal poles stopping people driving through a gap flex quite well when an unsuspecting gal drives under them.

    I put that down to experience, and was very, very thankful that my mum had fully comp insurance on her mk2 astra estate when the windscreen cracked and the roof had to be replaced.

    We all stood and watched a lad at college a few years back get smacked on the head by one of the poles. Was funny to watchat the time and looking back still is now
