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 the equivalent of R2 370, 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?” Baruch 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.
