Not as strong a shiny crashbarriers
Seriously, I doubt they are strong. Normal crashbarriers can somehow stop a truck from going to the other lane, I don't see these ones doing that.

Plus if you hit a normal crashbarrier you can actually bounce off while hitting these poles will most likely result in smashing your car and you getting killed

They use a lot of steel cable crash barriers in Sweden...Visually it's much better than traditonal barriers IMO, but I doubt it's safe enough.

Actually those wire crashbarriers are a lot safer than ordinary ones, if you're driving a car. It absorbs the force of the impact much better. However, if you're a motorcyclist they're like fresh knives cutting through your skin...brr.

But regular crashbarriers are designed that the car 'slides' under them and stops - I doubt the rope barriers are designed to do so too

I f they were so brilliant they should be used worldwide, huh?

Wouldn't the car's sliding under the barrier mean that the brute of the force is taken by the upper part of the metal framework? As to why the wires aren't used worldwide is possibly because of the hazard to motorcyclists, and also because it takes some time for new things to catch on.
