The former USSR countries also don't use them.

I think they are not installed in Slovakia. Most of the divergence bollards look like this:

That is quite a dangerous place to stop your car, even if the police forces you.
In NL I've never seen this one, but we have other ones.

In Norway I have only seen those things separating the lines between toll booths, but I have only seen them in yellow colour.

The closest thing we're got to this in the UK is this...



But you never find it of motorways, usually just built up areas.

Apparantly, we have some sort of gore point signage.

Low version:

High version (behind the overpass).

It looks like they're choosen randomly, often, the aren't placed at all.

Actually, what are they good for? Just signing the separation of lanes, that can be done by normal signs as well... and regarding the fact that we're talking about motorways, they can' really offer more security because they're simple plastic as far as I can see.

Interesting. Ireland does have these. Is this a recent developement, as I've never noticed these before, when looking at pictures of Irish motorways...

Well, most places that supposedly do not have these bollards have reflective (usually striped) signs at the point of divergence, although not everywhere. They are important at night or in conditions of limited visibility, as they reflect brightly and essentially scream at you that you are about to run into a wall

This particular design, however, is somewhat unique (I believe originally used by the French?), although it has been adopted in some other European countries and, interestingly enough, in China.

Britain, Finland, much of the former USSR and (at least I thought) most North American states/provinces don't use anything. Someone mention that you find that design in parts of Mexico. It'd be great to see examples of this, or in other parts of North/South America.

Well, we do have them in Ontario:



You can also see some sort of barrels to dampen a potential impact.
