A driver in Mercer County, New Jersey learned a costly lesson about ignoring parking laws.

Check out what happened to the person's car when they parked in front of a fire hydrant.

Firefighters in Hamilton Township posted photos on social media showing what they had to do in order to put out a fire on Thursday.

Crews smashed two of the car's windows, then snaked the hose through the Acura.

The department hopes the pictures serve as a reminder that it's not only illegal to park in front of a hydrant, it'll be expensive if a fire breaks out while you're there.
