Not one of those bollards appears to have been wearing a helmet.  Basically, they were asking for it.

How many of these bollards are victims of deliberate (possibly sexually motivated) assault, rather than simply bad driving?

Ah, but that’s still victim blaming. They wouldn’t have been beaten up if they hadn’t been forced to wear hi viz.

But it's their own fault they were beaten up. Nobody really minds them being ace at maths/having red hair/talking with a funny accent, if only they would learn to blend into the background like everyone else.
