    They put them on the side of the road, as if they were parked cars.

    It wasn't in the middle of the road, it was actually at the side... which makes it even stranger.

    happens quite a lot. They are supposed to have lights or at least reflectors around them but sometimes they either get nicked or dodgy skip operators just dont bother. Then if car/bike driver isnt paying attention in the dark its an accident waiting to happen.

    Friend of my dad lost his son when he hit one on a motorbike in the dark. Some students thought it was a laugh to nick the warning lamps around it :/

    I thought you needed to get out more when I saw this, then looking at you location, it made more sense.
