VIDEO - 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.
According to a 2009 report
by the City's Enforcement Department the humming metropolitan is lacking a staggering 324,000 parking spots.
The report, commissioned by a municipal committee tasked with trying to solve the issue, also stated that the shortage results in over 3,000 parking tickets a day, most of which are given between 5pm and 7 pm, in central Tel Aviv.
