At East 24th Street in Manhattan, not far from Gramercy Park, the traffic on Third Avenue switches from being two-way to the south to one-way-uptown to the north. In order to prevent motorists from becoming confused at this and to keep them in their appropriate lane, the DOT has put up a row of plastic bollards that bend at the base. Despite their flexibility, about half of them have been run down and obliterated by careless drivers. Wow. Please, people: You gotta stay focused on the road.
