Roadside cabinets which can now be made passively safe, offering a real contribution in the reduction of personal injury to the occupants of vehicles involved in such accidents.
Safety barriers are traditionally used to prevent vehicles hitting objects such as larger signposts, lighting columns and traffic signal posts. However, these are expensive to install and maintain and are a hazard in themselves. Crash barriers may not be necessary where passively safe street furniture (tested to EN 12767) is employed.
Where the road design will benefit from a safer alternative to traditional cabinets and other street furniture. Avoids the need to use a crash barrier. Should be used in the same manner as other passive safe road structures such as crash tested/safe lighting columns.
