I would say that a chicane is designed to slow down traffic (much like a
speed bump) and make a road less suitable for through traffic, without
blocking access for any vehicles that are able to use the road on either
side. This barrier is constructed to in such a way that cars which are able
to use the road, are unable to pass the barrier.
