This happened in Israel, but it's pretty funny, and there's video of it online . . .
After a woman parked her car in a completely LEGAL spot on her block, she ended up getting TOWED . . . because city workers painted a HANDICAPPED space around it.
She was initially ordered to pay a fine of about $350, and apparently tried to plead her case. But no one believed her until she got her hands on security footage from a building across the street.
It's pretty low-quality, but you can clearly see them paint a bright, white line around her car. Then it shows the tow truck show up later on to take it away.
Needless to say, the woman DIDN'T end up paying a fine. And city officials apologized, calling it a quote, "severe mistake and a case of incompetence."
