We all learned in driver’s ed (or when our dads were helping us learn how to drive well enough to pass the test) that you’re not supposed to park in front of a fire hydrant. The official rule is 15 feet on either side, in case you forgot.

I mean, I certainly didn’t, but you might have. And you had, you wouldn’t be the only one.

For instance, this person in Merced, CA appears to have forgotten – or maybe they were just in such a hurry that they figured it was no big deal. I bet they said to themselves, “What are the chances there will be a fire while I run my errand?”
