This is why you shouldn’t park in front of fire hydrants

A New Jersey driver who parked in front of a fire hydrant got burned — when firefighters bashed out his windows to run a hose through the ride.

“This is what happens when you park in front of a hydrant,” the Hamilton Township Professional Firefighters posted on Facebook — along with a photo of the silver Acura. “Reminder, it is against the law to park in front of a fire hydrant.”

Firefighters spotted the inconsiderate parking job after rushing to a house blaze on Norway Avenue in Hamilton around 1 a.m. on Thursday, according to

The driver’s bad car-ma recalls the classic Seinfeld episode “The Handicap Spot,” in which George blocks a space meant for a disabled person at a mall — and returns to find his dad’s car demolished.

There were no injuries in the single-alarm fire and officials have yet to determine its cause.
