The latest flashpoint between drivers and the City of Vancouver: ‘banana barriers’
The City of Vancouver calls them the latest incarnation of its “slow streets gateways.”
Stanley Woodvine calls them “banana barriers.”
They’re concrete barriers that have been painted yellow, tilted sideways like flippers in a pinball machine and installed at 37 locations around Vancouver in an attempt to slow traffic.
And they’ve become the latest flashpoint in the never-ending battle between drivers, the city and cyclists.
There have been several incidents where cars or SUVs haven’t seen the barriers and have gotten impaled on them.
