London’s evolving bollard-style streetscape security solution

During the last year, several major cities around the world have been the target of vehicle-borne attacks. One of them is London.

Ram-raid robbery shows there is a growing need for bollards

Last week, a group of around five men ram-raided Jai Jewellers in Smethwick, England. They smashed a lorry into the shop and threatened the staff with weapons.
