They usually consist of a simple strong upright post either anchored securely to concrete or  buried into the ground in the ratio of 2/3 exposed and 1/3 into the ground, in this case we see neither. If you look at the damage to the front of the bus, you will realise it is a small and light impact. Therefore, do you think the bollard can serve its purpose if there is a runaway car in an accident?
