Mayor Crushes Illegally Parked Cars With Tank

If you park your car illegally, Lithuanian Mayor Arturas Zuokas will crush it with a tank.

Okay, so it’s not a tank, that’s just for the headlines. Technically, it’s an APC, but the message is fairly clear. Ferraris, Rolls-Royces, Corvettes, Mercedes-Benzs… they all got to go if they’re parked in bike lanes.

For Mayor Zuokas, blocking bike lanes it not only illegal, it “shows a lack of respect and won’t be tolerated.” Nice soundbite.

Watch the madness:

The Highlights:
Zuokas bikes around town taking photos of fancy cars next to no parking signs. He spots a Mercedes parked naughtily in a bike lane. Obviously it’s a slow day so Zuokas gets into an armored vehicle and crushes the vehicle. He then gets down from the APC and sweeps the streets like a boss. Or anarchist.

Yes, justice can be quite badass but this looks like a poorly composed publicity stunt. The man whose car got crushed comes out and thanks Zuokas for the lesson in life by shaking his hand.
