SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Sacramento Metro Fire has an important message to drivers; stop parking in front of fire hydrants.

They shared an image from a scene last night in Sacramento, where a truck and trailer are blocking access to a hydrant.

Firefighters remind drivers that it’s illegal to park within15 feet of a hydrant in California, and that blocking hydrants delays firefighters being able to access water in critical situations.

  1. Everyone knows it’s illegal. This guy doesn’t care. This should be a double, or triple fine if blocked during an emergency… Plus impounding the vehicle. Gotta get his attention.
