Uh, I've read about people driving into them and knocking them over in order to steal the copper wire and getting hurt, but never for an end user getting hurt. Quick google search brings up no reports nor risks of this problem, do you have a source for this? Sounds like BS.

Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2F9HKZ5VzA , There are a bunch of articles about POSSIBLE problems with the public self serve. I couldn't find the one where someone got knocked on their ass. It probably was taken down (bad for social justice agenda).
