bol·lard (b l rd)
1. Nautical A thick post on a ship or wharf, used for securing ropes and hawsers.
2. One of a series of posts preventing vehicles from entering an area.
The term is probably related to bole, meaning a tree trunk. The earliest citation given by the Oxford English Dictionary is from 1844: previously, simpler terms such as 'post' appear to have been used.
Types of bollards include maritime bollards, road bollards and internally illuminated traffic bollards.
Interesting bollard trivia:
Geelong artist Jan Mitchell paints decorative bollards to enhance the landscape as a form of outdoor public sculpture.
Comedians Suren Jayemanne and Jay Morrissey's 2013 Melbourne International Comedy Festival show doesn't have too much to do with bollards. Instead, their humour combines a mixture of stand-up and video, perfect for those with iPhone induced short attention spans. Get trending. #bollard
