IMHO it is hard to blame the construction of a pole itself when it meets 2002 3.2L L6 BMW M3 Convertible with 340BHP.

My colleague just shown me a picture of this car he took right after the collision - it does not feel that car was driven at 30mph (yes - this is 30mph zone when you are approaching Victory roundabout from the West)

But yes, I do agree with you - personally I do not like the construction of these new light poles.
