Custom 'Batmobile' seized by Russian police over safety concerns

A giant, ferocious-looking, "home-made" Batmobile has been confiscated by Russian traffic police on the streets of Moscow over concerns the privately-made vehicle was not roadworthy. The vehicle, owned by an unidentified 32-year-old Moscow resident, was seized on February 22, 2020, and was found to be not registered with the relevant authorities, not approved for participating in traffic and possessing dimensions in excess of "acceptable norms".
