There are at least two ways this man could’ve handled the situation, and he chose none of them.
Getting your car towed (with or without a good reason) can be very frustrating, but it’s very important not to let your exasperation get the better of you in those moments. It’s always better to remain calm than to hop on the towing truck, start your car, and attempt to jump off the platform because things will most likely go wrong; very wrong.
The gentleman in the video, named Arthur, clearly didn’t want his car taken away, so instead of resolving the “issue” like a responsible, sane adult that is entitled to maneuver 1.5 tons of metal on public streets, he decided to act out (and possibly ruin his car in the process).
At what point the man reckoned it’s better to break his car than pay a lousy impound fine is unclear, but what’s worse is that almost every bystander encouraged his behavior. Fortunately, his attempt in getting the car on the asphalt (and inadvertently injuring himself or others) failed thanks to the chains securing the vehicle’s axles.
So, if you’re in danger of getting your car impounded, remember, it’s better to settle the dispute in court instead of becoming famous on the internet.
