I have walked past these a lot and thought it was odd that there were these random stones sticking out of the pavement/road. I never knew they had a purpose until yesterday when somebody told me. It could be hard to convince reviewers these are anything more than mere rocks since even though they look out of the ordinary I also thought they were just plain old rocks (how naive of me)!
