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.
