Would concrete barriers STOP a terror truck attack? Researchers shocked by test results

RESEARCHERS have carried out tests on the effectiveness of concrete barriers to protect against terrorist truck attacks – and found them to be close to useless.
Local authorities and event organisers have been increasingly using the barriers since last July’s attack in Nice when Tunisian delivery driver Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel killed more than 80 people as he ploughed a rented 19-tonne lorry into Bastille Day crowds in the southern French resort.

A copycat attack on a Christmas market in German capital Berlin in December left 12 people dead and 56 others injured.

But tests on the barriers carried out by German current affairs show Umschau appear to show they would fail to prevent similar attacks in the future.
