TEL AVIV – This story you just have to see to believe.

A woman in Tel Aviv, Israel was astonished to find her car towed away.

She was certain she’d parked in a legal spot and went to work finding surveillance video.

Sure enough, the video shows city workers arriving while her car was parked and painting handicap parking lines all around it.

Then her car was immediately towed.

The video is such an embarrassment to the city they offered immediately to waive the fine and apologized.

The woman said she’s considering legal action for what she calls “an organized effort to collect illegal fines.”
