Splitting pole, is considered bad luck by some people. When walking in a group and obstructed by an obstacle, i.e a pole, traffic cone, whatever it is, it is important for those who believe in this superstition that the group does not seperate on either side of this obstacle.
"Cause at a young age, I was molded in a religion
I relied on - and got caught up in superstition
Scared to split pole, duck black cats
Once in a while, threw salt over my back"

-GZA from the song "Swordsman"
