Ah, but that's theft.
In the 1970s the firm I worked for built "robot" garages - just a forecourt and pole sign, no buildings. Each pump had a "note acceptor" next to it. I designed and commissioned the note acceptors.
We built one on the A45, just after it stopped being the M45. I got a call one day that the site had gone. "Gone wrong? gone heywire?" I asked. "No. Gone."
I drove up there. The whole lot had gone. Pumps, note acceptors, pole sign. The only bit left was the tank underground, and they had emptied that.
