Someone has parked over a fire hydrant, can I report it?

Read answer

It is illegal to obstruct a fire hydrant, but the offence is only committed when the hydrant is required for firefighting. In the event of an emergency, a fire officer is empowered to move a car, for example by breaking a window and releasing the handbrake. Outside of emergency operations we can only hope that people are considerate and leave fire hydrants clear.
