Mayor Gets Rid Of Illegally Parked Car In Hollywood Style By Crushing Them Using Tank
A mayor thought tank was the best solution to deal with illegally parked cars in the city and went on to actually crush the expensive cars.
Vilnius mayor Arturas Zuokas rode an armoured vehicle and crushed a Mercedes S-class because it was parked in the bicycle lane. Zuokas thinks that illegal parking has always been a worry in the Lithuanian capital.
The mayor wants his act to be a lesson to everyone in the town. Expensive cars like Ferraris and Rolls Royce’s were all brought to ground during his clean-up act.
Understandably, the owner of the crushed ‘Mercedes’ was shocked to see his vehicle. The car was then towed away and destroyed. Zuokas shoke his hand and told him to park properly next time.
As a matter of fact, the viral video has been around since 2011. It was also reported that it was indeed a “dramatic scene set-up by the leader, to underline how keen he is to crush illegal parking.”
Zuokas said: “It shows a lack of respect and won’t be tolerated. Of course, you have to have a sense of humour in my line of work and I thought this would be a way of drawing attention to the fact that the city intends to be proactive in its fight against illegal parking.”
