OK, three spaces is bad but never park in front of a fire hydrant!

Here's a better picture, what an asshole. They deserve that dent in the rear quarter panel.

Couldn't they use the side ports on the hydrant?
Don't get me wrong, I'm all for messing up that car. Just curious.

Crap like this makes BMW owners look like douche bags.

According to the article:

“You can’t really bend a charged 4-inch feed line. Straight and a slight bend is about as good as you can do. And they will never park in front of a hydrant again. Water is everything at a fire and you need it ASAP.”

That said, if you've ever spent much time in Boston, you can understand the impulse to park in front of a hydrant. Just saying.

Reminds me of a scene from one of the episodes of Rescue Me. They did the exact same thing, smashed both windows and ran the hose right through, flooding the interior in the process

You don't ever park in front of a hydrant.

Prob is a woman, the driver's seat is moved way up.

...But that passenger side has got the gangsta lean thing going on.

I'm assuming there is a pretty hefty fine to go along with the damage to the car as well?

Looks like the side connections are a lot smaller. I assume they needed more flow than the side connections would allow.

This sh!t hole was out of luck... Insurance won't pay for fixing that dented panel and broken widows when they found out it was violate city parking and oh he/she got a parking citation for this as well.
