Disabled parking bay painted around car
Road workers have been caught on camera towing a car away in Tel Aviv - after painting a disabled parking space around the vehicle.
Hila Ben Baruch was ordered to pay £170, plus towing costs, after being accused of illegally parking in the Israeli city.
The angry motorist, who had parked near her apartment, later uncovered surveillance footage of the shocking incident and posted it on Facebook.
"You just see it and can't believe it," she wrote on the social network where the video received hundreds of likes.
"Within five minutes they turned me into a criminal. But who cares? The important thing is that Tel Aviv sucked some more blood."
Ms Ben Baruch has since received an apology from the local city hall who waived the fine after admitting it was a 'serious error'.
But that was not enough to satisfy Ms Ben Baruch who is now threatening legal proceedings.
"I don't plan to keep quiet, not even for a moment, or to rest or to calm down," she insisted.

what do you think?
This was CLEARLY a criminal action by all involved to declare it a 'serious error' doesn't even come close. Criminal proceedings need to be processed against those involved and the companies should both lose their contracts.
So naughty. Ridiculous. I hope she takes this all the way. I like the way they "wave" at fines in Tel Aviv! I hope they waived it too though!
Like Gordon says, perhaps the woman should have reported the clampers for theft of the car (unless of course it was the police who did it, unlike our 'de-regulated' clampers !)
"Waved the fine"??????? Tut Tut Orange!
Where is Tel Aviv? I think you mean Jaffa, Palestine... As for the video - thank you for proving your greed, guys!
It says waived.... And Tel Aviv is one of Israels largest cities. Jaffa/Yafo is just a part of this city.
I wish Ms Ben Baruch every success in her legal proceedings.
