A week ago my sergeant sent me an email about a traffic complaint received on our department’s Facebook page. The complaint was about illegally parked cars in a certain neighborhood at night.
It was about 11:45PM on Thursday night when I cruised by to see what I could find. It took about five seconds before I saw what the problem was. It didn’t matter if the curb was red or if there was a fire hydrant. It was total anarchy with cars everywhere. No wonder there was a complaint.
I found the first fire hydrant with a car parked in front of it and called a tow truck. Once that car was gone, I drove to a different spot and found another hydrant that was blocked. After that car was towed, I drove 50 yards and found the next blocked fire hydrant.
It was a fire hydrant hat trick.
After I was done with the third car, I drove by the fire hydrant where I found the first car and guess what I saw?
Yep! Someone else was parked in front of it. Tow truck number 4 please. It’s the fire hydrant that keeps on giving.
I think you must work for the same agency a close relative of mine works for because he was telling me about complaints they got just like this one. Good work. If the fire hydrant could talk, he could be your CI, lol.
The fire hydrant would probably beg me to keep coming back for me!
