I know that in some brands the base and bottom of the traffic drum is shaped in such a way that if it tips over it will not role around, but get caught and stop rolling.  In other brands they are circular but have a ‘lip’ so that it gets caught before it keeps rolling.  Another difference can be the height, which I have seen at 39″ in some models and 42″ in others.
