Russian dashcam videos prove time and again why every Russian needs a dashcam. From insurance scams to topless protesters, you never know what you’ll see on the streets in Russia. But here’s a new one: this illegally parked car is picked up like trash and destroyed by a truck’s massive crane, then deposited in the back of the truck. This sure makes parking tickets seem mild.

Youtube user foodandart offers one explanation of the unique scene. He commented, “Just before the car goes into the back of the truck, you can see where the license plate ISN’T, so obviously this is an abandoned or unregistered vehicle. Who knows how long it was sitting there and for all we know, it may have been a junker getting taken away… Russian style.”
