How many fire hydrants do you maintain?

We have some 14,000 fire hydrants in Buckinghamshire. 5,900 are in roads, and 8,100 are in pavements or verges. While it is an offence to park over a hydrant when it is required for firefighting, it is not an offence to park over it when it is not required. It is quite possible that several hundred hydrants will have cars parked on top of them at any one time!
