JERUSALEM (AP) - 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.

Determined to prove her innocence, she obtained footage from a security camera showing municipal workers painting the handicapped symbol under her car, then towing the vehicle away.

She told Channel 2 she was "shocked." The video, put on Facebook, has gone viral.

The Tel Aviv municipality has apologized and refunded the fines.
