WRB's not all they are cracked up to be!

  1. Just near my place this morning there was an accident on the Western Hwy(2 lanes in each direction with a large median strip in between and WRB just installed to the middle on the East bound side). A car heading West has left the road, crossed the median strip and hit the WRB, catapulting the car OVER the WRB into the path of oncoming traffic and flipping it onto it's roof! The chopper was there to air lift the injured to hospital.

    Aren't the WRB designed to stop the cars from entering head on traffic? These one's just made it worse by flipping the car on its roof as well. They clearly FAILED to do what they were designed to do.

    It will be interesting to see how long before they are repaired now also.
