He deserved it for parking in front of the hydrant, but couldn't they have routed the hose under the car?

Do you see the size of the valve? Think they're going to take precious time feeding that under the car (if it'll even clear the undercarriage) just because some moron parked in front of the hydrant?

He's parked so close that it would have cause a pretty good angle in the hose too restricting flow.

Guy got what he deserved.

Of course they could. If they hadn't been a bunch of jerks on a power trip they might even have thought of it.

If the driver wasn't a total moron who parked in front of a hydrant then they wouldn't have had to think about it. Reminds me of where I used to park in high school in some small development, on several occasions I would come back to my car and find that everyone on the street but me had been ticketed because they parked with their left side to the curb... it amazes me how many people fail to recognize simple traffic laws.

Well maybe the guy pulled alongside a gap and reversed into it, got out of the car and walked off without noticing. Because you certainly wouldn't notice it under those circumstances. Ever think of that before you go calling people morons? Those jerks had options and you know it.

No, they can't. Stop trying to defend an idiot. Like I said before, see how big the end of that hose is? Think they're going to take their sweet ass time trying to move it under a car when something is on FIRE? The car's right next to the curb too so there's no way it would have fit. Plus do you think they want that hose under all that pressure rubbing under exhaust hangers, bolts, and other crap under a car? And finally such a sharp angle restricts the flow of water. You know the water they're going to use to PUT OUT A FIRE.

They have more important things to worry about than precious car windows. You'll get a ticket and not a dime from the city. The way it should be.

Many are underground. You'll see signs for them.

I keep forgetting that's a law.
I'm from Germany and we don't have fire hydrants in Germany so I never had to worry about it. Lol
