Safety devices in a car work to protect the driver in a crash.

Safety devices on the road should not needlessly injure drivers, however, they exist to protect others above the out of control car.

Take a bollard. It is not designed to minimize injury to the driver. It is designed to maximize the chance it will save whoever is on the other side of it.

So, if a driver somehow gets himself killed on a chicane, it is very likely the lesser of evils versus someone on the sidewalk getting hit, or the car plowing through the side of a house hitting a dinner table.
