Installing eyes that light up would enhance the experience

Will there be one with money coming out of all its pockets that tells you you're near City Hall ?

They're creepy and immobile,
Simulated roadkill,
They're Billy and Belinda,
The Bollard Fam-i-ly!

NMUA, I'm thinking that motion detectors could allow them to jump out at cars that come too close, arms flying up, red eyes, fang-lined mouths gape open. Basically the Dr. Who Weeping Angel package. Some might think that extreme, but hey, safety first.

Billy was a happy, normal boy, until he crossed over into [cue music] the Bollard Zone.

Padraig -- I'd add in a blood curdling scream as an upgrade

Were these designed by Stephen King?

Are Billy Mumy and the Robot still best of friends?

Add motion sensors and motorized head rotation and some people may avoid the street altogether.

Bollards of the Damned...
