Abolition of smuggled cars into the country in the Philippines


In the Philippines, 21 luxury vehicles smuggled into the country through customs were crushed with heavy construction equipment and turned into scrap.

It was announced that the vehicles, totaling $1.2 million, had been scrapped “to give a message to the smugglers”.


As the luxury cars lined up, they were crushed one by one with the ladle, as the Philippine government intimidated the smugglers.

And the luxury cars that were smuggled into the country and seized between 2018 and 2020 were ceremoniously crushed.

Noting that the total value of the vehicles that were crushed and scrapped with a bucket amounted to about 1.2 million dollars.

The Philippine government made the decision to dismantle illegal vehicles in 2017 to give the message that smugglers will not be allowed to pass, and 17 luxury cars have been scrapped in the same manner this year.
