* On ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' Kramer convinces George to park in a handicapped space when they can't find anywhere else to park at the mall ("Handicapped people, they don't even ''want'' to park there, they want to be treated just like everybody else. That's why those spaces are always empty."). When they come back, it turns out that a wheelchair-bound woman had injured herself as a result of not being able to park in the space, and an angry mob is waiting for the owners of the car - and eventually demolish it. To make matters worse, the car belonged to George's father, who is arrested in the middle of his United Volunteers meeting, right after receiving an award for all the fundraising he did to help buy wheelchairs for handicapped people. In TheTag, the gang are back at the same mall and again cannot find a parking space, [[HereWeGoAgain so Kramer tries convincing George to park in front of the fire hydrant]].

* Part of the [[https://www.youtube.com/user/Lomak1581 "Stop a Douchebag"]] movement involves this. If you park illegally and refuse to move, they'll put a sticker on your windshield that reads(translated from Russian) "I don't care about other people, I park where I please."

* There is one sure-fire way to find yourself on the receiving end of this: Park in front of a Fire Hydrant. Fire Fighters have no time to politely ask you to move your car, so, they'll just smash the window and thread the hose through. Or, they'll force your car out of the way with one of their trucks[[note]]Which keep in mind, have more than enough horse power to shove your sedan out of the way[[/note]]. And for bonus points, if you think you can get away with suing the department for the damages... [[ShmuckBate good luck]]. Not only will you lose the case horribly, you'll also have to pay a hefty fine for your poor parking decision, on top of the repair cost. Oh, and did I forget to mention that your insurance rates may even go up as a result?
