Unusual Car – level 1

03-03-2020 07:00

Police in Moscow, Russia see an unusual car. The car looks like the Batmobile. The Batmobile is a car from a movie about Batman. The car is very big. It is 20 feet long and 13 feet wide. It is very dangerous for roads.

The police do not see the driver of the car. They call a special towing service. The towing service puts plastic around the car. They do not want to damage it. They take the car away.

The police say that somebody builds the car illegally. The car has no registration.

The driver is 32 years old. He breaks traffic laws. The police want to speak to him. He is in trouble and he must pay money.

Difficult words: towing service (when a big car comes and pulls away another car), registration (papers that shows you own something), traffic laws (rules for drivers).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
