    Yes, they were probably just checking you didnt have a criminal record. I think most of these things are for show though to sort of scare you off and they won't follow it up!

    I took a traffic cone on Sunday night and woke up with it on my balcony. I have no idea why, but it seemed like an amazing idea at the time.
    My mum is a goody two shoes and took it back down onto the street!

    A short court case and then a death sentence, I think.

    Just to check you're not wanted for anything else.

    I remember me and my mates stole a road sign for my mates bedroom (haha, i got one in mine) and we got pulled over and made to walk ALLL the way back while they slowly followed behind in their car.

    You will probably be named and shamed in the sun, and a angry mob will descend upon you with pitchforks and flaming torches. s'what happens when you mess with the traffic cones.

    lol gutted

    You gotta get a sign that the builders/gas men/road workers/whoever didn't put the little bolt/whatever in the thing that connects the sign to the base.

    That way you don't have to lug around a heavy base and you can just saw off the protuding plastic pole when you get home.

    Aren't you usually complaining when they don't stop petty theft and minor antisocial behaviour because if they are seen not to bother it encourages greater criminality?

    Absolutely, they'd be really buggered if it turned out that you had an arrest warrant for something serious and they just let you go.

    I'd say 'Regatta de Blanc' is probably their best album (and 'Ghost in the Machine', their worst).

    Last time I got my details taken like that, I got a letter through the post as a warning. Not too good if your parents see it!
    This is why it's always best to give a fake address when asked.
