April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month, as observed by the National Safety Council. Thousands of people die in car crashes every year, but those numbers seems to be steadily increasing due to distracted drivers using their cell phones and other devices behind the wheel. Distracted driving fatalities are preventable! Even if you are a safe driver, you or your property could still be negatively affected by the actions of a distracted driver.

Hercules High Security is here to tell you about how Distracted Driving Awareness Month relates to your high security facility.

Distracted Drivers Can Damage Your High Security Fence

In addition to taking lives, a distracted driver could easily damage your high security fencing and make your facility vulnerable to attack. More often than not, potential vehicle damage to your high security fencing is intentional and brought on by someone who is trying to gain unauthorized entry to your facility. In this case, a distracted driver could hypothetically be traveling at a high speed near your facility and look up from their cell phone to suddenly realize they are about to crash with another vehicle or person. The result? They swerve to avoid the subjects and crash right into your high security fence, gate, or bollard.

Crash-Rated High Security Features

There are high security features available to you that can combat the impact of a vehicular crash, whether accidental or intentional. Crash-rated security features like gates and bollards are incredibly beneficial when it comes to securing your perimeter. Depending on the K-rating of your crash-rated feature, it could be able to stop vehicles traveling up to 50 miles per hour from accessing your facility and causing further damage.
