How do you paint a handicapped symbol under a car?

I think it was because the video went viral on facebook, and the transportation authority (or whatever they're called in Tel Aviv) realized that the entire population will now know their jerkoffs and decided to drop everything. Her just having the video doesn't do much anymore, it's only when the court of public opinion weighed in that she had any credibility (in their eyes).

Oh, thanks.

It worries me I need the news explained to me. I better go lay down for a while.

This is the first article about this I've seen that mentions Facebook. I have to wonder if it really played a part, or if the station just assumed Facebook = clicks.

I guess it worked.

This was a scene in a "Merrie Melodies" cartoon.

Lady parks and feed meter, goes into bank, meter is replaced by fire hydrant, lady comes out to find cop ticketing her car.

/where's the bank video of little old ladies counting pennies one at a time?

Double fail, nothing was done about the car that parked in a No Parking spot.  Also, why only take her car under this premise and leave all those bikes blocking the path a potential wheelchair lift from a van.

Here's an article that actually shows the video of the incident (scroll to the middle). What a bunch of scumbags.

"A city representative accused her of lying, then told her she'd be charged a 350 shekel towing fee ($95), according to the Times of Israel."

Jesus Christ, could FARK get any more racist?  This is an isolated incident.  I can't imagine any significant number of Jewish people arbitrarily claiming a location and then penalizing the current occupants, like these traffic police did.

Yeah that's racist.

The cost of employing a road crew to paint the symbol, then another crew to tow the car, vastly exceeds the paltry $300 fine. Israel isn't a third-world country - people make nominal wages there.

It really is. Although, I suppose having those in widespread use would make life ridiculously easy for any halfway intelligent ring of car thieves.

I stood at my office window and watched while Seattle Parking Enforcement dropped a temporary stop sign right next to my truck, and then ticket my truck for parking too close to a stop sign.  I complained, and they made me pay the fine.

Later that week, I stole the stop sign.  It hangs in my garage to this very day .

Had an F250 4x4 stolen once.  They called us because it was towed and had company logos on it.  The tow lot here in the USA uses a big fork lift to lift them from the side like that and store them in something like a warehouse pallet rack system.  Evidently the tow operator was inexperienced or didn't care and totally forked it too far to the rear and bent the rear drive shaft.

So, we had to pay towing and storage for all the days before they called us.  Then we had to send a couple guys down to bring it back.  And they had to pay the impound.  Then they found out that the impound people had totally farked up the rear drive shaft.  So we had to order a new one.  Wait to receive it.  Send another crew down to pick it up, install the new drive shaft.

Needless to say that they had to also pay for the additional days in impound and the city wouldn't reimburse for the cost of the damage they did to the truck.  Or the labor.

Nothing isolated about it, but it's not a Jewish thing, it's a government thing. Governments world wide do this kind of thing. This isn't the first story I've seen of a parking place becoming illegal while a car is parked in it resulting in fines or worse.
