Street sign theft
Street sign theft is the phenomenon of street signs that are considered unusual or amusing being stolen by collectors, sometimes repeatedly or as a popular student room decoration. Sometimes considered to be a prank by the perpetrators, the theft is often expensive and inconvenient, and sometimes dangerous.
In one notable United States case, the thieves were found guilty of murder for stealing a stop sign, and thereby causing a deadly collision. This was popularized in the novel Driver's Ed by Caroline B. Cooney.
