Treat people the way you want to be treated. The mayor of Vilnius, Lithuania bullies back cars who dangerously squeeze bicyclists in on the roads.

Any urban bicyclist can share with you the frustration of having to avoid people and cars blocking what should be clear bicycle lanes. Sometimes it can make you want to destroy all the impediments with a tank. Today, in Lithuania, mayor Arturas Zuokas lived out the fantasy of every bike messenger forced to dodge a Dodge (or BMW or Toyota) on their daily route.

“I’ve had enough of these drivers parking their luxury cars on bike lanes and pedestrian crossings,” said Zuokas, a former war reporter. “This tank is a good tool to solve the problem of parking in the wrong place.” With that, the 43-year-old mayor rolled over a blue Mercedes that was parked in a bike lane.
