Mayor smash!
The mayor of Vilnius runs over illegally parked cars. With a tank.

“It seems that a tank would be the best solution” -Arturas Zuokas, the Mayor of Vilnius.

“War on cars,” indeed. Parking is a problem in the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius, where Mayor Arturas Zuokas says cars are parking with no respect for the law. The mayor was especially frustrated with the number of cars-including Rolls Royces and Mercedes-Benz-choking up his city’s bike lanes. So he got in a tank and did something about it.

His spokesperson, Irma Juskenaite, says the car in the video was bought specifically for the video.

“The mayor hopes that he will not have to repeat his performance to have drivers heed his message,” she told the Guardian, “although he says that he is prepared to do so.”
