This enables traffic to pass, or raised to block traffic. Rising bollards are used to secure sensitive areas from attack. To enforce traffic rules that are time related or restrict access to particular classes of traffic. They are increasingly common around the world to hinder vehicle based terrorist actions, from achieving close proximity to buildings. They are also used to prevent Ram-raiding.
A "manually retractable bollard", however is lowered by a key mechanism. A retractable is a short post which can be lowered either manually or automatically. They go into the ground when not needed. It is especially useful in a mixed use public space which supports both pedestrian use and emergency and or service vehicle use. This flexible use creates opportunities for vehicular control as well as pedestrian accessibility in a mixed use public space. Manually retractable bollards are appropriate for new projects. Especially for reconstruction projects since they do not require retrofitting into existing landscapes.They don't require any electrical hookups or hydraulic systems. Similar systems that are hinged at ground level, and fold flat allowing vehicles to drive over them. They can be deployed in similar circumstances.
