This Idea is to Stop high speed car chases on public roads
It would work by making lampposts with Concrete blocks with lights on the top and on one side so if a police car chases a getaway car along a stretch of road the police can close it off quickly and effectively. And civilians are alerted to the
danger by the flashing light on the lampposts (which also make them highly visible so they don't crash into the lamposts that have folded over)

||Another bun if they can also chase the car.
||I would imagine placing a concrete barrier in the middle of a main road is going to be "pulverising the fleeing vehicle" regardless.
That said, I'm all for it.
I said it would close off the area not pulverise the offending car, motor cycle or truck, It would close far enough away to allow the offender time to stop rather than forcing them to crash into one of the folded over lampposts. Also only a few lampposts in an area would fold not all of them!
