Don’t take that cone!

Tuesday, October 22, 2013 By: admin

trafficconePopular on college campuses and around bars is the act of taking an orange traffic cone or two off the street and bringing it home with you.  I’ve seen it happen and it’s usually after drinking.  However I would advise everyone to avoid doing this because you are actually stealing the city/state’s property and it’s a punishable offense.  If you are caught with a traffic safety product you could end up getting arrested.

Of course how far the officer wants to punish you is going to depend on that police man but it’s not worth gambling the device.  So next time you see a cone you want to grab I suggest you resist the urge and get one at your local Home Depot or hardware store.  It will most likely be a lot cheaper in the long run!

If you don’t believe me check out this news story about three kids getting arrested when an officer discovers they had taken traffic cones. http://www.wkbw.com/news/crime/–Quick-Way-to-get-Arrested-Steal-Traffic-Cones-126081923.html

traffic cones, traffic cone, plastic traffic cone, orange traffic cone, 28 traffic coneThough I just started selling traffic cones, I have found rather quickly that the most popular traffic cone is the 28″ and typically weighs around 9 lbs.  This may vary from person to person, but it seems to hold true at this point.

When looking for traffic cones, you will notice that a lot of times though a cone may be the same height, it is not the same weight.  Manufacturers tend to change up weights depending on what they think their end users want.

If you stop by your local car wash, you will probably see green or blue traffic cones directing you to the building.  Even when stopping at your son’s or daughter’s soccer practice, you will see mini traffic cones for them to dribble between.  You really can’t get away from them, they are everywhere.

What could these problems be?  Well, for one it could break or the color could fade out.  If the cone has been run over chances are it is broken, and you will have to get a new one.  If the cone is faded into a different color, try switching suppliers the cones could have came China.

Did you know that traffic cones can have blinking lights on them?  Did you know they come in over 5 different sizes, the most common being 28 inches?  Do you know that some are different weights and some come with bases, or can you can get bases as an option?  Well, now you do!
