Not like I like cars (I don’t), or illegal parkers (I don’t), but I can’t help but think it’s a waste of a perfectly good car. Should just repo it then sell it at an auction, starting price is cost of towing+ticket+fees. Car gets new home, owner loses car, city gets money, residents get passable bike lanes.
I suspect it wasn’t even a functional car. When Hollywood needs to show a car being destroyed, I understand they normally buy a totaled car from a junk yard and fix up the exterior so it looks good enough for the shoot. It’s rarely necessary to destroy a working car.
