I'd be happy if he just stole the ones that have slots parallel to the road, and they got replaced.

Seriously, I don't cycle within two feet of the edge of the road as this is wear 90% of the pot holes are due to poor utilities repairs and the buses that run over them.

I am stronger than Mensa, Miller and Mailer, I spat out Plath and Pinter.

Steal some metal, leaving holes in the roads and get 12 months in jail.

Drive dangerously and kill a pedestrian or cyclist and get away with a fine.

visited Solidcast 78 times..., wouldn't alarm bells start ringing after a handful of appearances?

Larger fines for scrap merchants that take them, better still the scrap merchants taking photos, vehicle details and personal information of the people who bring them in like they are meant to. Yeah sorry i'll get my coat. Had this problem a couple of years back near me and the councils ended up replacing them with HDP ones.
