Cordoba in July 2019

Cordoba

First we followed the GPS which took us through narrower and narrower streets, then eventually we got to the "security" entrance to the old town near the mosque. The hydralic bollard was down - that is below ground, so it looked acceptable to drive on - wrong, the hydralic ram pushed the bollard up in front of the car in an instant, and "wham" I drove into it. By the time I got out of the car to inspect the damage, the bollard and sunk back into its hole. I then called the central control, and after a bit of shilly shallying, the bloke informed me that it was safe to drive on. At the hotel they told us , without a trace of sheme, that some 45 cars had been so hot in the last few months, and even ahotel employee had been dented by a bollard.

It is surprising how much damage is caused from driving at low speed into a bollard
