(Newser) – Here’s one emphatic way to crack down on cars squatting in the bike lane: Run them over with a tank. The mayor of Vilnius, Lithuania, did just that recently. In the video below you can see Arturas Zuokas—supposedly an “avid cyclist”—climb into an armored personnel carrier and crush an illegally parked Mercedes. Grist says it's "obviously staged" (just look at the cheesy acting from the car’s supposed owner), but hey, it makes a statement.
