Wheel Clamp Man: Hero or Villain?

A
caped crusader who named himself the Wheel Clamp Man found his calling
when he got clamped one day. Now, the mystery man with a Zapata mustache
and green leotard roams the city of Perth, Western Australia, with an
angle grinder to remove the wheel clamps by his nemesis Parking Meter
Man.

Wheel Clamp Man has reportedly been helping forlorn motorists for several
weeks in Perth, Western Australia. He was tracked down by a weekend
newspaper, but refused to disclose his name and said he was inspired
by England’s Angle-grinder Man, who wore a blue leotard and removed
clamps in London and Kent almost a decade ago. He wore the costume to
avoid being filmed on closed circuit cameras and asked drivers before
removing the metal restraints.

“I’m helping people out,” he told Perth’s
Sunday Times newspaper. “I don’t feel I’m damaging
property.

“The amount of money these companies make off innocent people
is insane. Where does that money go?

“Not into car parks or safer streets. It goes into their pocket.”

The police department, however, considers him a menace and urges the
public to turn him in: Link

POLL: What do you think, Neatoramanauts? Is the Wheel Clamp Man a hero or a villain?

  • Hero – Give him a medal!
  • Villain – Throw him in jail!
