It's recommended that these cables should have protection. The protection should also stop vehicles running over the cables at high speeds. This product is a one-stop solution for both these needs. The sleeping policeman's shape handles the speed control aspect. Underneath, the cable channels protect cables that may be otherwise open to damage.
