Ben Franklin would be appalled

Buried hydrant

Johnmcboston photographed this buried hydrant outside the Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology in the South End, named for the man who convinced Philadelphia to start a fire department after telling civic leaders there how well prepared for fires Bostonians were.

It's amazing that no one, not even the businesses nearby, can be bothered to dig these out. Here's a Ninja Hydrant on Comm. Ave. just past BU where I got a ticket on Thursday. I know ignorance of the law is no excuse, but does ignorance of the presence of a hydrant constitute a valid basis for appeal of a $100 parking ticket?
