Unusual Car – level 2

03-03-2020 07:00

Police in Moscow, Russia saw an unusual car that was parked on a main street in the city center. The car looked like the Batmobile which is a car from a movie about Batman.

The car was 20 feet long and 13 feet wide. It was too big, and it was not safe for roads. The police called a special towing service which put plastic around the car because they did not want to scratch it.

The driver was not there when the police came. However, officials said that he was a 32-year-old man. Officials said that somebody built the car illegally.

The driver broke traffic laws. He never registered the car. The police want to charge the driver.

Difficult words: towing service (a service when a big car pulls away another car, usually because the car is broken), register (to put information about something into an official list of similar things), charge (to say officially that somebody broke a law).

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