These U-shaped steel or iron tubes on the middle of a two-lane road are an ingenious design to improve traffic. With them in place, there is no way someone can “use” the other lane. First, it means that you cannot stop whenever you want to, like most people do there, since you will block everyone behind you. Second, you are pretty safe if you drive properly on your own lane since people in the coming traffic won’t be able to drive into your lane. These dividers will not trash your car if you drive into it, but for sure it will cause some damage.
