This video demonstrates another roadway safety concept for directing traffic with safety cones. I like the idea, but doubt the robustness and practicality of this concept.



Safety on the road for transportation workers and emergency personnel are worthy investments in new technologies. However, I remain skeptical of this concept. There are too many motorists that would enjoy bursting balloons.

I would opt for a solar highway barrel with LEDs and GPS positioned by a robotic base all remotely controlled by the man behind the curtain. Until then, concrete barricades and heavy duty impact attenuator trucks will suffice.
