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
