FTFA:But the elongated shape and rounded top of the bollards has drawn some derision.

Dear Post-Gazette: I understand your need to maintain some level of decorum for the sake of the rapidly-aging tea-sippers who are the core readership of the Suburban Living section. But seeing as the word penis already made it past at least one editor, let's address the whole problem.

It's not just the elongated shape. It's not just the rounded top. It's the seemingly gratuitous groove molded into said top. What function could it have other than as a designer's private (snicker) joke?

Sometimes a bollard is just a bollard.

If you flatten the tops, there'll be a sharper rim around the top, more likely to cause injury, and there'll be a flat surface where people will leave cups and other trash.

Much cheaper and more effective to just let the "adults" in your community get over their sixth-grade mindsets.

Instead of flattening the tops, I think they should drill a hole down the center and plumb them as fountains.  You could have a syncronized water display that would be the envy of Las Vegas and a year-round tourist destination.  Think outside the box, people.

"I think those posts are too far apart. I think a small car like a Volkswagen could get through," he said.

That sounds uncomfortable.
