    Especially in Florida. I just saw on the news where someone parked right next to a fire hydrant. When a fire broke out, the fire department couldn't get a hose underneath. The car was too close to go over. Fire fighters carry axes. They go through walls and such as a matter of routine. Car windows are much easier to break than walls. The pictures they showed had the hoses going through the car via the rear windows.

    I'll bet that person won't do that again.

    His reputation went right down the drain. :D He was pretending the faucet's name was Farrah.
