The video above shows mayor Arturas Zuakoas making his point via a military tank and a luxury car. Be prepared to watch it multiple times!
In Lithuania, mayor Arturas Zuakoas is aggravated with luxury car owners who feel they can park their high-end cars and exotic rental cars anywhere they please. The eccentric 43-year-old mayor discovered a Mercedes Benz parked in a bicycle lane in the capital of Vilnius, and promptly ran over it…with a freaking Russian tank.
Unique Mayor runs over Mercedes with tank
Mayor Zuakoas stated:
“I wanted to send a clear message that people with big and expensive cars can’t park wherever they feel like and ignore the rights of pedestrians and bike riders.”
Wow. He really cares about the underlings on the bike paths. I like that he feels strongly about keeping egos in check, but shows the biggest one of all atop a military tank, too fun!
“It shows a lack of respect and won’t be tolerated. Of course, you have to have a sense of humor 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.”
The aftermath of the tank’s bold statement
The stunned owner of the defeated Mercedes was photographed exiting a shop to find his German saloon destroyed by the stylishly dressed civic leader. The funniest part is how truly shocked the owner is, he barely responds at all!
The car was later crushed, along with the owner’s heart. This is him emerging to discover the remnants of his luxury car!
