The part we all hate most about driving is undoubtedly parking. Finding a parking spot can take hours (or what feels like hours) and can be quite despairing; so much so, that we might park in unauthorized spots if we get really desperate. However, this Tweet will teach you that no matter how desperate you get, parking in front of a fire hydrant is never a good idea.
There’s a reason why parking in front of fire hydrants is forbidden – and it’s not because you could get your car towed, but the risk is a lot bigger. In case a fire breaks out near your parked car, firefighters would have to connect their water tube to the nearest fire hydrant, and if your car stands in the way, well, tough luck.
