On Tuesday, Mayor Bill de Blasio said New York City will install more than 1,500 new barrier posts on sidewalks and plazas, to protect pedestrians from vehicles after at least two instances last year of drivers killing people after mounting the curb. The thin, cylindrical, waist-height metal bollards are intended to be a more attractive alternative to the hulking concrete blocks. There has been a spate of attacks on pedestrians in European and U.S. cities by people using cars or trucks, a tactic that the Islamic State militant group encourages its supporters to use.
