דוח, בני ברק, פקח

Last Thursday a B'Chadrei Charedim surfer saw an inspector of the municipality of Bnei Brak recording a report of NIS 250 for a vehicle parked on Rabbi Akiva, despite the warning triangle placed at the back of the vehicle. The inspector documented the vehicle parked in a no parking place, but the picture taken – showed no warning triangle placed since the inspector recorded the vehicle from the front side.

The surfer sent the photos to the editorial board, and on Friday photos were released here on the site, hoping to help the owner of the vehicle.

The car driver saw the pictures on the site, and sent to B'Chadrei Charedim pictures that documented the car handled by a Shagrir mobile unit.

The driver, an Orthodox woman and resident of the city, told B'Chadrei Charedim that while driving the vehicle engine turned off and she couldn’t start the engine. She parked on the side of the road and got out - while summoning Shagrir to help her.

Until the arrival of the Shagrir mobile she waited nearby, but not adjacent to the vehicle. Therefore she was surprised to find a report of 250 NIS - despite the warning triangle she set.

She turned to the Shagrir Company, from which she received approval for failure and treatment of the vehicle, and with the documents she intends to contact the Municipality of Bnei Brak to cancel the report given illegally.

Municipality of Bnei Brak's response:
A. From the picture it appears the car is parked in a central location, parking on red-white, and near to the traffic lights, it is the most problematic parking site.

B. Placing a 'triangle 'sign is not enough proof, because - unfortunately - many act this way to park in prohibited places, without any justification.

C. The warden claims that when he wrote a report there was no triangle sign, and also, usually those who leave the car for repair usually leaves a note on the window with information and contact information, which was not done in this case.

D. Concerning this specific case: the warden was summoned for investigation and hearing of his position with Mr. Morris Bochbot, supervisory authority in charge of the parking lot to check the situation true and clearly. If it becomes clear that there is justice in the claims of the driver, we will take disciplinary measures against the warden, and the report will be canceled with attorney Yehoshua Dahan, municipal prosecutor, who is the sole legal authority to cancel the tickets.
