Update: NYC addresses fire hydrant that generates $33k in parking tickets

A few weeks ago, a fire hydrant in NYC made the news for being the most lucrative in the city, earning $33,000 last year in parking tickets.  According to local residents, the ambiguous marking and placement of the hydrant fooled drivers into believing it was a legal parking spot.  The hydrant was placed several feet back from the curb due to a curb extension, but many erroneously believed the curb extension was a bike lane. 

According to Gizmodo, after all the attention the hydrant received on social media, the city addressed the problem and repainted the block to make it clear cars cannot park there.
