BMW M3, Meet Traffic Bollard. Traffic Bollard, Meet BMW M3.


A traffic bollard. “A what?”. A bollard. You know, those things like poles that can be raised or lowered from the road surface to block off certain areas for whatever reason? You may see them at parking garages, tolls, etc. Well, here’s one in the Netherlands doing a different kind of blocking. 4.4 litre blocking to be exact.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The owner of this E92 M3 happened to park above one of these bollards, and when the bollard did its job, well, the draining oil puddle behind the car should give you an idea of what happened. Apparently the force of the impact through the engine was so great it set off the airbags.

  1. I would think that for safety, these retractable bollards would move fairly slowly. The fact that the airbags went off seems to indicate otherwise. Would have loved to see it happen – bet the car caught some air…
