Guardrails are meant to be safety devices designed to protect drivers and passengers in cars that lose control. A recent study by the University of  Alabama, however, shows that a newly designed end terminal, or guardrail head , places motorists at higher risk or serious injury or death.

Modifications to the guardrails which reduced one piece from 5 inches to 4 inches  allegedly causes roadside hazards according to the SafetyInstitute.Org, an organization which studies field performance of items on highways.
