Lithuanian mayor clears bicycle lanes

Mayor runs over illegally parked car in armoured troop carrier:
This is the moment a frustrated mayor drives an armoured vehicle over a Mercedes for parking in a cycle lane. 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.

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

According to our local news station, the car was taken from a local junkyard - they say it was basically an empty shell without engine and trans -, and the "owner" was an actor.
