It has escalated from fire hydrants to light poles.

What’s the matter, fire hydrant not good enough for you? Kidding, hope you’re OK

Well I hope they we’re able to read the full text message before hearing “BANG”.

Why did you have to drive drive up on the curb?

Texting while driving or just drunk??

They were aiming for a fire hydrant. 🙂

No hydrants were harmed in this incident.

Great, now the Hydrant Lobby will come before City Council to complain we are not paying enough attention to them and that this is just grand standing by the Poles.

How about a new link in the Quick Links section below CHP Traffic and Local Weather called Poles & Hydrants
Let’s keep record of these, the new phenomenon.

That light pole is going to cost the driver a pretty penny!
