Ridiculous to have something like that on a corner surely.
To be fair they are there for a reason (to prevent drivers from cutting a corner cleanly etc) but having one on that particular corner isn't a very good idea, in hindsight.

The cameraman saw the rest of them coming and abandoned his position, you can see him scramble from the opposite side vision. Can’t blame him.


And the cleanup was epic, love the big “shovel” lift.
