Is this mostly British, or only British? Did other countries have police boxes? If someone in the know could put a Usage Note down, I would appreciate it. --Stranger (SSL69 23:15, 24 August 2005 (UTC))

The police box existed in one form or another in many countries. See here for a picture of an American police box. However the "blue box" design appears to be British. -- Nick1nildram 02:27, 25 August 2005 (UTC)
Hardly measures up to the British - it's more like the drive-up telephones in the US today. Appreciated. --Stranger (SSL69 02:41, 25 August 2005 (UTC))
  • Police boxes are still common in Japan. — Hippietrail 19:33, 9 April 2007 (UTC)
