We've all been there. Cycling along happily, before careening to a halt behind some dolt parked in the bike lane, probably to nip in and fill his face with pizza or fried chicken, perhaps even a falafel, stuffed to the brim with spicy humus and cheese and tahini and... sorry, got a bit hungry there.
Anyway, as the age-old saying goes, they handle these things differently in Lithuania. No British tutting and cycling on with an air of dignified resentment for them, oh no.
You see in the capital, Vilnius, the mayor has set quite a precedent by running over an illegally parked - and rather pricey - Mercedes S-Class, in what appears to be a tank.
Video footage shows Arturas Zuokas declare: "What should the city do about drivers who think that they are above the law? It seems that a tank is the best solution."
He then cackles to himself while crushing the car, before its owner, sporting a naturally villainous white jacket and chain combo, steams out of a nearby shop aghast.
Showing admirable sang-froid, Zuokas shakes the man's hand, admonishes him for the errant parking and begins to sweep up as the car is towed away.
"I wanted to draw attention to the fact that if you have a car and lots of money, it still doesn't mean that you can park your car wherever you want," Zuokas said.
Commendable thoughts no doubt, even if a spokesman for the mayor's office ruined the message somewhat by admitting it was all a stunt and motorists were more likely to face a fine or have their car towed than crushed by hardware remnants from the Soviet regime.
Still we can't help but think that if Boris is serious about making London a cycle-friendly city then it is about time he learnt a lesson from Eastern Europe and hired himself a tank.
