When I went to my first Fasching parade in Wiesbaden, I enjoyed a little bit of Schadenfreude when I saw that some ding-dong who had parked in a no parking zone got towed. I was also super excited to see the tow truck because I had never before seen a tow truck that actually picks up the truck (link to that blog entry here)!
Miniatur Wunderland also has a car being towed. Push the button on the display and the car is lifted, just like in real life. It was nifty to watch.
