CGTN America based in Washington ran an article last week focusing on anti-terrorist barriers designed to protect large crowds of people from vehicle attacks. The twist here is these barriers are larger and constructed from concrete much like those protecting workers in highway construction areas.
They are found in Times Square and Trump Tower in New York City, Israel, in London at Westminster and London Bridges.
These anti-terrorist barriers do seem to work in many world-wide applications. However, certain questions are raised as to their effectiveness, whether they damage the aesthetics of the area and even might scare visitors away.
Although effective, nothing is 100% sure and the concrete barriers are meant to minimize risk rather than completely eliminate it. Another even sadder greater potential risk may be from the sky in the form of weaponized small drones.
