Bad Usability in Road Dividers

Look at this Picture , Road divider has no reflector to indicate that there is Divider and the height is also more, number of accidents occur due to this reason, Many NH roads have the similar problem.

Consider a scenario when the driver is coming at a good speed in that road during night time, the road is smooth and there is no divider or anything so he continues to go with the same speed or more, suddenly he sees a divider which is only a few meters away from him and he could not stop or slow the vehicle finally he ends up with an accident which is similar to the image above.

If there is a reflector in the divider or board he would have seen that much before coming near to the divider and avoided the accident.
