Seriously, no one steals manhole covers out of boredom or to actually put them to use.

They want the scrap metal.

Scrap metal junkyards. I think i recall the junkyard pepople tried to sell me back my stolen aluminum gate for $4 per pound. Gate is about 10lbs so $40. Those manhole covers are quite heavy, large profit at city's expense.

Couldn't you sue the city for damages if you hit a uncovered manhole? And if you know the location, call the city's hotline and report the location so they can have crews out there with replacements.

Yes, they are heavy, but they are just iron which has the lowest scrap metal value. I don't even bother with taking things in that are iron...not worth the effort.

Now the extra 500 I made selling the old copper pipes from bathroom renos I did was totally worth it-although I think that's where I picked up the nail in my tire.

Good on you OP. That is a scary looking accident.

Great to see the pedestrians/strangers coming to the aid of the driver unlike other crash videos we've been seeing lately.

1) It's an old video, not really funny anymore and very played out.
2) It's about a rapist, last I checked rapists don't steal manhole covers to have sex with the drain holes forcibly.
3) Why abuse the multimedia abilities of this forum to link to such old, boring garbage.
4) How does one go from stealing pot hole covers to raping people? I guess you could make the argument that rape and stealing man hole covers is both forcibly uncovering holes for entry, however I digress.

I am quite upset with your post.

I'm on 2 wheels. If I hit one, I'd be in big trouble.
Quite possible if I was night riding.

get your tin foil hats ready...


maybe the contractor who is responsible for vancouver man-hole covers sent an agent to remove them. thus getting a new contract to replace the "stolen" covers.

The price of steel is going up, and considering that manhole covers are inch thick hunks of steel...

You get the point.

Usually they are not make out of steel.. just plain iron. There is a glut of steel in the market right now, and prices are going down due to slow down in China.
