Fair enough, he should get compensation for the damage, and pay a hefty fine for being lazy and stupid plus court costs.We have these bollards where I originally came from - one driver said he'd sue the council, then he got issued with a court summons for entering a pedestrian area
There was a campaign in the local paper against them, and the council sadly fitted them with sensors
Great. Hope they did plenty of expensive damage to the cars, which will really serve them right, and the fact that their stupidity is now on the internet for all to see just adds to the punishment, which is far worse than any fine.
They don't just put these bollards up in random places - they're always at the entrance to Pedestrian Zones and always accompanied by one (or more) of the many signs that equate to "No motor vehicles."
