Whoever crafted the bewildering fire hydrant rule is a master of exceptions. The rule itself is easy. You are prohibited from parking within 15 feet of a fire hydrant. But, can you park closer if:
- There is a driver sitting behind the wheel with the keys and a driver’s license?
- It is 9 p.m.?
- You are in a commercial vehicle?
- There is a no-standing sign nearby?
- The fire hydrant is broken?
- And so on…and so on…and so on

Fire Hydrant Quiz Q & A
The correct answers are in green!
Always be on the lookout for fire hydrant ambushes. You may find a hydrant hiding in plain sight.
There are a bunch of exceptions to the fire hydrant rule you should learn. But, don’t forget about some nuances that are not covered by the “plain” language of the mystifying rule.
- Broken Fire Hydrant
Would you park within 15 feet of a broken fire hydrant? I wouldn’t. There is nothing in the rule that says it’s O.K.
- Parking sign
I would park within 15 feet if a parking sign specifically says it’s O.K. (like this sign)
- Hidden by garbage
This is a picture my friend took to support his defense to a hidden fire hydrant ticket. It’s rare to win but he did. Yay!
- How far away from a hydrant must you park?
You best better know the answer to this question.
