It's a pay as you go, so there's no monthly fees.

Hopefully, the lesson won't be how to sue someone for booby trapping, which is illegal in many states (maybe all, for all I know). REALLY hopefully the guy won't have a cardiac event due to the shock.

See some kid walking around with a bright orange crotch, and you know what he was up to.

You are not fun at all.

The only issue I see is a wrong number, or a solisisation call, that give a whole new meaning to wrong number.

That and the contact points on a bike are where, hands, feet, and taint (OUCH)
