Ralf Scherrer from St Gallen, Switzerland, used the massive machine to move a classic Fiat X1/9 sports car that a selfish driver had parked in his way.
A construction worker in Switzerland took the law into his own hands and moved an illegally-parked car.
He explained that motorists park their vehicles in difficult spots ‘all the time’, but this time it really made him mad.

‘We all watched her trying to get out of the spot and she had to do a 30-point turn. It was very satisfying – and I bet she won’t do that again,’ he told the Austrian Times.
Plenty of drunk drivers spend a night in the cooler after they get busted. Very few spend a night on the cooler before their arrest.

You may think that being ticketed twice in two years by the same police officer for speeding isn’t too unusual but you’d be wrong in this case. An unnamed New Zealand driver was ticketed in the UK for speeding and then two years later ticketed by the same officer but this time it was in New Zealand— two years and 12,000 miles away.

The procedure for offloading a grain truck includes pulling into the elevator, opening the dump gate and hydraulically lifting the bed until empty. It also requires lowering the bed before driving away. The last step is critical, as illustrated here.
