It’s been a while since I last wrote about Vehicle Traffic Control Spikes. In fact, it was in November, 2017 when I wrote two articles about Vehicle Spikes at Hertz Rent A Car. One of the articles was entitled: “Barrier Gate and Vehicle Spike Operation at Hertz Rent A Car” and the second one was
“Vehicle Control Spike Solution | Hertz Rent A Car in Chicago“.
Earlier this year I spotted an article from The Indian Express (in New Dehli, India). A member of parliament’s car hit a security boom barrier (a.k.a. barrier gate) at the parliament complex. The accident activated the traffic control spikes which quickly disabled the car. However, counter-terror measures were likewise quickly deployed as the compound was placed on alert from possible attack.
You can read the entire article at “BJP MP’s car hits security barrier at Parliament, triggers counter-terror measures”.
Since this intrigued me, I did a little more digging. I did not initially know that MP stood for member of parliament. Also, I found that according to Wikipedia BJP stands for the Bharatiya Janata Party, which is translated to mean Indian People’s Party. The BJP “is the current ruling political party of the Republic of India. It is one of the two major political parties in India, along with the Indian National Congress.”
These traffic control spike units are specifically designed to stop cars or trucks by puncturing the tires on the vehicles and causing them to deflate and prevent proceeding. From the picture on the site, it appears it did the job as specified. Read more about “Vehicle Traffic Control Spikes”.
