Jerusalem - An Israeli woman has turned to Facebook to beat a parking ticket — and expose a Tel Aviv road crew.

Hila Ben Baruch says she parked her car legally near her Tel Aviv home only to find it gone and replaced with a handicapped parking sign. City Hall slapped her with more than $300 in fines. Making matters worse, she says a city representative accused her of lying when she called to complain.

Determined to prove her innocence, she obtained footage from a security camera showing municipal workers painting the handicapped symbol under her car, then towing the vehicle away.

She told Channel 2 she was “shocked.” The video, put on Facebook, has gone viral.

This is typical law enforcement in the modern world. Everything is sheker, they always try to setup a trap to get money from the people. See mishneh in avos

They're as bad as NYC. They'll do anything to pad the pockets of the city. It's lucky for automobile owners that there are cameras almost everywhere recording all the time.

The Torah Observant MKs should introduce legislation that would require the municipal workers and others found similarly guilty to a compulsory draft to spend one zman learning full time in a Charedei yeshiva.
