I guess "not parking next to fire hydrants" is something that gets ingrained into our skulls long before we begin driving. That seems to be the case.

And, of course, to help us along, most cities conveniently place some sort of post or, at the very least, yellow paint to warn us to stay away from them.

Still and all, SOME people just can't take a hint.

Now, I don't where this picture was taken, but the Owensboro Fire Department found it recently and posted it.

And while, yes, it made me laugh, it's also fair warning about what could happen to YOU should you choose to ignore one of our most well-known parking laws.
