An impact attenuator, also known as a crash cushion, crash attenuator, or cowboy cushion, is a device intended to reduce the damage to structures, vehicles, and motorists resulting from a motor vehicle collision. Impact attenuators are designed to absorb the colliding vehicle's kinetic energy.

They may also be designed to redirect the vehicle away from the hazard or away from roadway machinery. FDOT Temporary Traffic Control (Maintenance of Traffic) Training Handbook Page 2 of 8 c.
