This kind of parking is unacceptable #Chicago #Fire #Police

One thing that bothers me is idiots who park in front of a hydrant.

Not like 30-seconds, but more like hours and hours and hours.

THIS IS A BLATANT DISREGARD FOR SAFETY!

So I called my friends at Chicago Fire Engine-35, Truck-28, Ambulance-62, Battalion-17 who advised that I call Chicago Police and inform them.

So I did. Chicago Police promptly showed up and ticketed the car. #booya

Hey Jagoff – enjoy your $150 ticket #0964100A (Within 15′ of fire hydrant).

Then a tow truck (hook) showed up and made my night because….

…I now have full hydrant access again.

Hey Jagoff! Now enjoy your $150 charge for towing your vehicle and $20 storage fee.

Expensive night out for your blatant disregard of public safety. Hope it was worth it.

Friendly reminder to anyone: Don’t park in front of fire hydrants. Ever.
