Because fire trucks are way cooler than tow trucks.
We're all know these people. They buy an expensive SUV, then use the car's four-wheel-drive to park like douchebags on sidewalks. Take this Russian BMW owner. He decided the best place to leave his white X6 is inside a public playground. Little did he know, area residents weren't having any of it. In this 40 minute video, a group of locals sneak up to the car, set it aflame and let it burn to the ground. When firefighters show up 20 minutes later, there isn't much left to do for the charred Bimmer.
It's a little painful to watch, but there is some pleasure in this tough form of justice.
