YOUR SAY: '˜Bollard crashes beyond a joke'
The infamous Fishergate bollard has claimed another victim after a car crashed in to it and spilled fuel on the road.
British Transport Police reported dealing with the incident on Preston’s Fishergate on Saturday evening.
The bollard – part of the controversial Fishergate works done by Lancashire County Council– has been knocked over numerous times by drivers who have failed to spot it in the road.

Should really start banning these drivers, how can you miss the sodding thing its massive?
If you can’t see them you shouldn’t be on the road
LCC should train the bus lane camera on it and fine everyone that hits it £60. They would make a fortune (granted they would probably have to give it back because of insufficient signage)
If you can’t see this you’ve no chance of spotting a little child, it’s not funny anymore they should be made to pass a driving awareness course. They should also check the mobile phones of anyone hitting it too.
I thought LCC are in millions of debt but can afford to build that thing.

Name and shame!!!! Public shaming is a fitting punishment for such terrible driving skills.We should all be allowed to mock these morons!
I worry about some drivers’ vision if they can’t see it. Keep out of their way!!
Oh well, they are after the treasure so let’s keep building it so they can’t get to it

Who pays for this to keep getting repaired?
For goodness sake make it something tall and majestic and something to be easily seen!
Should charge the person who designed it! Not us tax payers
It’s not a proper road bollard sign, how they got away with sticking that there in the first place is beyond me
Considering Lancashire County Council are cutting services that are actually needed . . .
Just put in a mini roundabout.
