I'm glad it's working!

The more I think about it the more it seems bollards are, in fact, a deliberate attempt (although unintentionally deliberate, if that makes any sense) to injure people--the steel ones, that is. Think about it. An immovable, solid steel object is deliberately placed exactly in the middle of the lanes of travel. We all know people are fallible, so eventually someone is going to run into it. It's just a matter of time. So when a dangerous bollard is placed right where cyclists have to pass by it, we know that someone will eventually be injured by it. Guaranteed. We know. Repeat: it's going to happen.
And yes, it's likely whoever is injured may have been inattentive or careless, but that's irrelevant. Traffic engineers put in safety devices on abutments and other solid objects all over our roads and highways to help reduce the impact for cars. Those are placed on objects that could only possibly be run into by reckless or inattentive drivers. But we protect them anyway.
Here are some examples:

Bollards, though, are not protected AND they are deliberately placed right where it's guaranteed they will cause injury. Seems almost like it ought to be criminal.
