The Mayor of Vilnius, the capitol of Lithuania, was tired of seeing cars parked illegally in bike lanes which are marked in green. The lanes are only for people riding bicycles and the city of Vilnius has worked hard to encourage people to ride bicycles instead of cars.
Since Lithuania gained Independence in 1990 the amount of cars in the country has skyrocketed. Four times as many people have cars nowadays. This means people are less likely to find a parking space.
Even if people have trouble finding parking, Arturas Zuokas, the Mayor of Vilnuis, does not think anyone should park in a bicycle lane. So he takes care of it himself by crushing a Mercedes with a tank.
What's shocking about this video? Not that Arturas Zuokas crushed a car with a tank, but that a politician actually did something. At least that's how I see it.
On his Youtube channel he did mock his antics by putting sticker on another illegally parked car “Don't Make Me Get The Tank.”
What do you think of this car crushing politician?
Harley-Davidson is an interesting brand with an interesting history. William S. Harley and Arthur Davidson grew up living next door to each other, and eventually became friends. Each man participated in America's industrial revolution during the early part of the 20th century, working in a local manufacturing plant in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Harley and Davidson worked together with Arthur's brother, Walter Davidson, to put a uniquely designed internal combustion engine on a bicycle, and thus the famous Harley-Davidson brand was born.
Harley-Davidson helped create the history of the motorcycle and has a special place in the motorcycling world. Based in the heart of the country, Milwaukee Wisconsin, Harley-Davidson contributed to the war effort during World War I, dominated motorcycle racing in the early 1900s, and quickly grew to become the largest motorcycle manufacturer in the world. Surviving the great depression, Harley-Davidson went on to again contribute to the Allied war effort during World War II.
Harley-Davidson is well-known in American culture, history, and movies. Motorcycle riding represents a freedom and joy that few other things can give you. That is why riding is such a coveted experience that is sought after by many, but enjoyed by few.
Harley-Davidson supports motorcycling culture in many ways. An important part of that culture today is safety, and the motorcycle enthusiast must ensure his or her safety and protection in all aspects of riding, including motorcycle insurance. (Don't skimp out on insurance, because you will be sorry when you really need it!)
Lots of people enjoy riding motorcycles, including myself and many people I know. Many will continue to do so for many years to come.
