traffic barriers


Explanation:
Creio que o prisma seja especificamente do Brasil, mas o termo genérico "traffic barrier" engloba o conceito.

(traffic/parking) wheel stops / chocks / blocks


Explanation:
Starting from the definition of what "primas" are in this context:
"Prisma de concreto: Artefato de concreto, também conhecido como Picolé ou Gelo Baiano, de formato trapezoidal, serve para demarcação e sinalização de pistas ou como apara rodas em estacionamentos."

Then I would venture to say their EN equivalents would be your pick from one of these that best fits your context:
