What will a corrupt city government do to get your money in fines? Paint a handicap parking around your car, then tow your car, fine you, and get a cut of the towing and impound fines. Nice huh?

thanks Steve for the story! (he wanted me to see the cool tow truck (side forks that allow a narrow street parallel parked car to get hoisted onto the flatbed while parked beside it in traffic))

Here is the great part, it was all captured on a security camera across the street, and the car owner was smart enough to check for that. She's avoided the fines (total $365 USD) got her car back, an apology from the mayor, and publicly (using facebook) exposed this scam.
