Vehicle Owner Learned the Hard Way Why You Shouldn’t Park In Front of a Fire Hydrant

This isn’t the first time this has happened. But the Bozo’s continue to show their stupidity. I wonder how long it would take to fill the car with water?

Finding the perfect parking spot is the bane of every driver’s existence and but sometimes the desire for the closest spot can put others in danger. You’ve seen it, people illegally parking in front of fire hydrants for easy access, but firefighters are teaching these inconsiderate parkers that this is a matter of life and death.

Yesterday New York firefighters had to smash a car’s windows as it was blocking a fire hydrant. The driver was also given a ticket by the New York Police Department.

The video has been viewed more than 90,000 times and has sparked a debate among Twitter users on whether or not the fire department should have broken the car windows or not.
Video below:

  • Some Twitter users are in defense of the driver, with one saying: “It took more time breaking out the car windows and running the hose through the car to prove a point.
  • “The FD owes the owner new windows, repair of other damages, and interior detail. The owner is owed a ticket for parking in front of the hydrant.”

However, others believe that the fire department did the right thing, such as one Twitter user who responded to the suggestion that the driver should sue and said: “Yes, he/she did deserve this. Break the law, suffer the consequences.

  • “Most people know this will happen if you park in front of a hydrant and a fire breaks out. A judge would likely throw the suit out while laughing his butt off.”

Like it or not this expensive vehicle damage was well-deserved. Hydrants play a key role in firefighting, as the trucks themselves can only carry 500 gallons of water – enough to put out a “dumpster fire.”

Parking in front of a fire hydrant may seem convenient but it can put people’s lives in danger

Firefighters must be able to access these hydrants immediately and won’t hesitate to make your vehicle the victim of some collateral damage
