Breakaway Pole

What is a breakaway pole?

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), about 20 percent of motor vehicle crash deaths result from vehicles leaving the roadway and striking a stationary object. To reduce the number of fatalities, injuries, and significant vehicle damage in fixed-object crashes, breakaway posts are installed on ground-mounted sign supports of utility poles, light standards, street supports, and wayfinding signposts.
