What's their game, eh?
they deliver them then don't have a car to get back with. They tend to get money for the train home, but a lot hitchhike to keep the cash monies.
I see quite a few of these on the A14 and never knew that.

Presumably they hold them up so you know they're a bloke with a job - not just some madman who hangs around at dual-carriageway junctions.
Perhaps they're being picked up by a colleague?
Certainly the ones I've noticed seem to proudly display them.

(I don't have any flights or upcoming holidays booked so IN ALL YOUR FACES)
then i saw them half an hour later, whilst still at lunch. they had presumably been picked up, then dropped at the roundabout
