Update: RIP Fire Hydrant #4

Liquefaction is no joke:

Since I moved into my apartment last year there have been a ton of accidents at the intersection nearby. Three of those accidents have also hit the fire hydrant at the corner hard enough to warrant replacing it, tonight added another. Water everywhere.

The sight lines at that intersection are terribad and the lights have no delay between red and green so a slight running of a red light = wreck. I’ve gotta think that increasing the delay slightly is cheaper than having to replace the hydrant 4 times.

Also, the car that crashed’s alarm has been going off since the wreck... an hour ago. For some reason the responders haven’t unhooked the battery. It’s driving me nuts.
