Mayor uses Tank to crush Illegally Parked Cars (VIDEO)

This is from a couple years ago, but it’s new to us.

Sick and tired of snooty luxury car drivers parking in his city’s bicycle lanes, Arturas Zuokas, the mayor of Vilnius in Lithuania, takes care of the problem with a tank.  Well, if you want to get technical it’s an Armored Personnel Carrier, or APC, but with a video as crazy as this, why argue?

Zuokas had his staff film him driving over one illegally parked Mercedes-Benz S-class with what appears to be a Lithuanian BTR-60 amphibious armored personnel carrier (if you think otherwise, please tell us why in the comments).  The stunt was then posted on the Vilnius City website which attracted worldwide attention.  Make sure you check out the look on the man’s face who comes to claim the car afterwards with Comrade Mayor present.  And you thought American politics was a circus.
