whoa, this is a flashback, anyone remember roads being lined with posts strung together with cable?

  1. There are a few backwoods locations here in Central NY that still do.

    There are still more locations with the 3 cables on steel posts... Im not sure what 3 loose cables do for you to keep your car on the road...

    1. Cool!
      I think the intent and design is to slow the car, absorb the force of impact, and redirect a car from straight off the road to down along the side of the road

  2. We used to have lots of those in Texas. Check out this scene from the movie Fandango.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xVeOCnKTMw&t=39s
