Armored Tank Crushes Car Parked In Bike Lane [Video]

You don’t have to live in New York City to know there are too many cars on the road and not enough space to put them.

Although some in the U.S. are trying to eliminate federal funding for biking and walking programs, other countries around the world are embracing the car-free lifestyle.

One of the greatest benefits of creating walkable cities and safe, convenient bike infrastructure is that traffic and parking problems become less severe.

Drivers who refuse to make the switch often leave their car in strange places, hoping that they don’t get a ticket, or as you’ll see in the clip below, something worse.

That was great! We have been without a car since Oct. of 2006, only because we can't afford it. That is quite a feat, considering were we live riding a bicycle and walking are very dangerous methods of transportation. Public transportation is almost non-existent as well.

P.S.

AN "APC" is an Armoured Personnel Carrier ~ NOT an "armoured tank" as the TV news reader so erroneously reported it..

BIG difference.. }:-)
