Clarisse tells Guy in The Hearth and the Salamander that her uncle has been arrested before for being a pedestrian. She is describing to Guy why her family is so peculiar because they sit around and talk and they go for walks for no reason. This is unusual because talking and walking and observing and thinking are all in stark contrast to the people in this society. People who are against the norms in society in any way are arrested.
