Thanks for being a stereotype

This guy parks like a douche, therefore all BMW owners are douches - in the eyes of many. At least he got what he deserved. I like how they messed up his rear quarter panel in addition to busting the windows. Nice work, Boston FD!

I'm pretty sure the FD could have used the valves to the side and not needed to go through his car. I think a couple of them probably winked and said something like "oh, well, looks like we'll have to go through his car"!

Hmm, will insurance cover this? seeing as how there is photo proof of illegal parking and a subsequent need for hydrant use? This guy might be royally screwed.

I don't see why they wouldn't. If you were to run a red light and take out another car, you insurance will still fix your car despite the illegal thing you just did. That's what insurance is for. Of course they will sky rocket your rates for the next 7 years because they know you drive (or park) like a jack ass, lol.

They could have used the sides, but the sides are smaller openings. Much higher water flow with the larger opening. I'm willing to bet there was no winking, just a "F**k him", and get the job done.

I'd imagine fire fighters get a little chuckle from punching out windows and what not of cars that block fire hydrants/park in fire lanes.

While I'm not saying firemen don't get a kick out of doing this (I sure would) it actually is standard procedure to do this. No exceptions.

Assuming the insurance company ever got the photo?

License plate not visible. VIN not visible.

I remember reading somewhere that during a firefighter live test, if you do this, you automatically fail. The first thing you do is to try and open the door and see if it's unlocked. If not, THEN you smash the glass.

I have parked my car overnight in Boston only to come out the next morning, after the garbage men came, to see that I parked right in front of a hydrant.

They do not mark the curbs here so you know there is a hydrant.

They do not even bother to paint stripes on the road (unless they had to remove a car lane to convert it to a bike lane).

Many intersections do not have stop signs.

The public servants in Boston are the laziest pieces of sh!t imaginable.
