In Australia when a car is pulled over by the police for being unroadworthy a defect notice is given and a large yellow sign (canary) is stuck to the front windscreen.
Being given a defect notice is thus referred to as 'being canaried'.
I got canaried on the way home because my car is a mobile disaster area. The cop was a total babe though so it wasn't all bad.
