Traffic Enforcement Agent Blocks Fire Hydrant With Her Official Vehicle To Go To Store, Then A Fire Breaks Out Next Door
Some laws may seem spurious and arcane. Other laws are very logical. For example, New York City vehicle and traffic law prohibits a motorist from parking his vehicle within 15 feet of a fire hydrant. This is not rocket science here. Obviously the law is in place to save lives by creating a zone for firemen to access the water and do their job as expeditiously as possible.It is a public safety hazard to block a fire hydrant. What if a fire were to break out?
In this scene, Jimmy Justice witnesses a new york city traffic enforcement agent park her official vehicle blocking a fire hydrant. Then she goes into a grocery store and a fire actually breaks out in the next building.
The firemen have no access to the pump and they are very angry. And this officer doesn't even come out of the store to move her car, until Jimmy Justice goes inside to give her a piece of his mind.
