After they put up barriers you only have to watch for cops on one side if you like to drive fast. Of course, the wrecker, fire engine or ambulance you might need later can't cross the median either, so you will have to wait, burn or hurt that much longer.

I'm aware of that. It is often a long way to a turnaround, compared to cutting across the median at a reasonably level spot, a common practice in dry weather. Drive up I-65 and note how nearly everyone speeds up as soon as they get to the barriers.

They already have to drive to emergency entrances because of the wire barriers.

You also understand they blocked most of the turnarounds which doubles responders times to car wreaks on 65 right? Some ones good thing to get around a speeding tickets cost peoples lives. Being your have to drives miles to find a turnaround now.
Also they should have left the concrete barriers up in the first place, they knew the cables would not stop anything. but hey.. why listen to firefighters we know nothing from running I-65 wreaks.
