Arturas Zuokas, 43, took the drastic action after becoming infuriated with motorists parking their luxury cars illegally around the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius.

The flamboyant politician decided to take the novel approach of fighting illegally parked cars by driving over them in a Russian tank.

He said: ”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.

”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.”

The shocked owner of the Mercedes was photographed exiting a shop to find his German saloon destroyed by the smartly dressed civic leader.

The car was later crushed.


"DIMITRI! READY THE TANK!"
"GOOD! NOW A CLOSER LOOK AT THOSE RICH RATS ON THE HORIZON!"
"THEIR ILLEGALLY PARKED CARS WILL BE THE FIRST TO BE CRUSHED ON THIS DAY!"

Didn't this win the 2011 Ig Nobel Peace Prize?

Haha, that's great. At least somebody puts some humor into their job.

I read about this last summer, but I forgot about it. This dude certainly knows how to enforce the laws!

I have to admit, that was awesome. Even if it was pretty uncalled for, the guy who parked the car illegally probably deserved it.

Ahaha this is wonderful. Less wonderful if he did buy the car to crush, but still a great way to make a point. Hopefully if he did buy the car he didn't use their tax money though. :/ Buying it probably would be better than crushing a random person's car, since they might not find it so funny when their car was crushed by a tank. Still, it's a tank. It's awesome. o.o
