Sure it's a dick move of the driver to park there. But every time I see a photo of this, it seems unnecessary, or it could have been avoided. Firemen doing it because the guy's parked there which entitles them to choose if they want to **** the car up. I mean sure you can, but ******* up someone's car unnecessarily is equally dickish as the guy who parked there

By parking in front of a fire hydrant, you are potentially risking someone's life. The only way they could probably efficiently use that hydrant is by going through the car, otherwise the car would reduce the flow of water. If you're going to risk someone's life by being an idiot, then your car is forfeit. I think it's completely fair.

No, thats not exactly true. See how the hose goes under the car then back up and through?

If they wanted to be nice they could have thrown the hose under the car and done it that way instead and it would have had less kinks in it.

Speaking from experience, If any douchebag parks in front of a fire hydrant, for starters we may not find it, which endangers lives, if you park too closely we can't connect to it and if you park any where within the vicinity of the hydrant making it harder for us to do what we need to in the allotted amount of time we have to actually stop the truck and get the hydrant prepped as the truck is leaving.. Your vehicle is going to get ****** up.

well that makes sense! In Australia, the hydrants are about 2m away from the kerb and hidden underground so there is plenty of room, and they're marked in the center of the road with a blue cats eye so I hadn't considered either of those things.

I'm glad I don't have to worry about parking in front of them here :3

They mark the hydrants like that here in America too, all hydrants have a blue cats eye (we call them reflectors here but its the same thing) in front of them. This guy is just being a dick or he's an idiot who wasn't paying attention when he park OR when he got out of his car.

well it looks like the firefighters put several kinks into that hose just so it could go through his windows. Those kinks would reduce water flow..

If they put it around the car, the hose would have less turns and have a better water flow. (it probably also would have been quicker to connect since they wouldn't have needed axes)

Sure if smashing windows makes it easier or the flow of water better it makes sense and I'm with you all the way, and in certain situations that might be so.

but in the content here, it looks to me like firemen doing it because they could, not because they needed to or to help anyone faster.

Either way this doesn't phase me because the fire hydrants in Australia are designed significantly differently and parking in front of them isnt a problem. Not sure if firemen can smash your car windows in Australia for parking in front of a hydrant, but if they can they don't abuse that power to do so.

Doesn't look like the hose is hooked up yet, or it's been removed from the hydrant and not retracted yet.

And in a situation where people's lives may be at stake, are you really trying to defend the SUV driver? Personally, I think any car parked in front of a fire hydrant, whether there's a fire or not, needs to be immediately impounded & have a $1000+ fine.

Can anyone explain WHY this is legal?

no doubts, just curious in case it comes up in conversation.

you can stop reading at this point if you want, i'm just gonna rant on a slightly unrelated topic past this :p

My step-brother (14) doesn't believe seat belts are safe. His main arguments are as follows: His father (not mine) was in two accidents where not wearing his seat belt saved his life, and seat belts are uncomfortable. It doesn't matter how much evidence i show him or what I say to convince him, he just won't budge. He also hates cops because they put his father in jail for stealing a car, and doctors because... well **** if i know. i'm taking an EMT course right now and every time i come home and say something like "today I learned _____." he calls it ******** because "doctors are stupid" or some ****... i know there's not much i can do about it, but i try and it really bugs me that he's this arrogant and close minded. yeah, i know he's only 14, but at the rate he's going he'll end up he'll be just like his father (prison by 20, stereotypical abusive asshole in the 9th degree, doesn't pay child support, can't hold a job, etc). I'm debating just giving up and letting him learn the hard way, but he's family and i'd feel terrible if something were to happen even if it was his own stupidity that caused it. that and i don't know if i could deal with him saying my job is "pointless and un-needed, considering all we do is spread lies for money." so, if you've actually read this far i just wanna know... what would you do in this situation?please know that everything in this sentence is my step-brother's opinion. i myself actually plan on going into EMS as a firefighter/hazmat specialist.

Your brother is a real asshole. Tell him that he should keep his opinions on what others do for himself. Surely a 14 yo should be able to see that helping other people and don't be selfish in general is a good thing, but this seems to be not the case. And, btw, ask him if he wants to become the prison bitch, because he's really good at bitching.

The law says you cannot block access to fire hydrants.  If you do, firefighters are allowed to get to the fire hydrant by any means necessary.   
   
These hoses normally leak, so water will go everywhere.  The main damage to the car pictured will not be the windows, but the water damage.   
   
Going under the car is possible, but difficult.  These hoses can't just be thrown under a car, and if a kink forms or something it will be impossible to fix.  Lives could be risked because a firefighter goes under a car.   
   
Going over the car might seem nice, but the hose is really heavy duty.  The car's hood will be destroyed by the hose.  Also being above the car causes more of an angle between the hose and the hydrant so it might kink and prevent water flow, costing lives.   
   
tl;dr, parking in front of a fire hydrant is illegal, running a hose through a car will be safest way to ensure the water keeps flowing.

the fire service is full of traditions. this is in no way truly legal, but its how we have always handled the situation, and i don't believe anyone as gotten in big trouble. its all about documentation. it is much quicker to do it this way, as in an emergency situation seconds count. the other option is to push the car out of the way if we can, and by push i mean with the fire engine itself. we have a running joke: "we have big bumpers for a reason."

It does. But the instances of a fire department getting in trouble for legitimately doing something like this is extremely rare. Even when it's not explicitly legal to do this, it's the lesser of two evils.

so you're saying its easier to break two windows and pull a hose through a car than push it underneath or pull it around? Not at all defending a moron that would park in front of a hydrant...but really? That's wasted time if you ask me, that must not have been a very serious fire....

the supply line for many fire departments has a diameter of 4 or 5 inches. that's just the hose. the coupling add another 2 inches. yes smashing two windows is quicker. all you do is throw it from the driver side window to the passenger side, walk around, pull through and hit the hydrant.now if it was a really high sitting car, maybe i would take the time to try to fish it through the bottom of the car, but it puts too extreme a bend or a pinch in the hose it won't work well (ie i can blow the hose, damage the underneath of the car, reduce water flow.) and as for pulling it around, look at a fire hydrant. usually we connect to the big connection, or steamer as we call it. you can't connect to it unless you go through the car.

I'm probably missing some important point here, but isn't the hose already under the car? As far as i see, the firefighters have twisted the hose to get it under the car and then through the window, plus the kink thingies that holds it in place in the window has gotta put pressure on the hose, thus giving less pressure on the water.

Dude was parked in front of the hydrant. That's a dick move. Firefighters were teaching him a lesson with a dick move of their own...

Personally, I've always been the type to say "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind" but I think, in this case, this was an acceptable solution.

Also if your car is parked blocking the street or entrance to a building that's on fire, they sound their horn twice, if no one comes to move it they are allowed to ram it out of the way with the truck.

in all actuality, look at a normal city. fire hydrants aren't that common and for the fire department to smash open the windows to get it to work as opposed to snaking it around the car... look how close the SUV is parked to the hydrant. it would be impossible for the firemen to get enough water pressure needed to put out the fire. plus, it's the bigger dick move on part of the SUV driver. most cities have it posted and i can take a good guess as to say that the sign that's in the middle of the photo is a "No Parking" sign. contrary to popular belief. road signs are usually well thought out before they're placed somewhere

There doesn't even need to be a sign, it's just a simple law that you can't park in front of hydrants anywhere. Most hydrants don't specifically have a sign, it's just common knowledge.
