If somebody parks badly in the United States, there's not really much you can do about it unless a police officer is right there. Even with the most advanced technology in the world, we can't really do much to prevent each other from being total jerkwads. On the other hand, if you park like a jerk in Lithuania, they've got Soviet surplus technology, and they're going to do something about it.
Namely, use a troop carrier to flatten your car like a beer can. Lithuanians don't do things halfway, apparently.
Arturas Zuokas has a real problem in Vilnius, the city he's currently mayor of: rich guys parking wherever they feel like it because what are the little people going to do, complain? So he learned to drive a troop carrier and staged a little demonstration of just how seriously Vilnius takes its parking law. In fact, Zuokas learned to drive a troop carrier specifically to do this. We like how he phrases it: “a tank seems like a good solution.” You know, because they just had one sitting around for situations like this.
In the video, you can see him trashing a junked Mercedes, as well as a Ferrari and a Rolls Royce that were apparently dumped to rot on the streets of Vilnius. We really hope there's a follow-up of him using shock troops to beat up people who text in movie theaters, or firing homing missiles at bicyclists who blow through red lights and nearly cause car accidents. Or, hey, why stop there? Let tourists crush exotic cars with a tank; we've already done it in GTA enough times.
