Is this a good idea?

This "rampart" was poured on Canada Day on the eastern entry of the hamlet of Spruce View alongside Highway 54. A similar structure was created on the west side of the hamlet. They are presumably meant to be welcoming signs for visitors to Spruce View. They have the potential of becoming tombstones for motorists that have the misfortune of running into the ditch during stormy weather and slippery road conditions. Highway engineers go to great lengths not to place such immovable obstacles alongside highways.

It's the fluoride AND the fertilizer, the drinking-water!

How about an ergonomic, safe yet stately welcome to this place, beside the highway, with water ballasts and flowerbeds?
