Capital Transfer


I was behind a Securitas money van today, and this was written on the back:

This vehicle contains LOCKED SAFES TO WHICH THE Crew have no access.

I know why they put such messages on the back of security vans, but what's with the weird capitalisation? Is it that the company has a lax attitude to English? Is it that they think potential criminals do? Is it that they want to give some sense of the uncontrolled fury that will greet them if they try to rip off a Securitas van?

It's like reading a Victorian monograph. "On the Properties of dephlogisticated AIR AND THE MANNER of its extraxion".
