Anybody know if paying a shekel for a ticket is still working, I just got a 1,000 shekel ticket for parking in a handicapped spot. (I didnít realize it was a handicapped spot, I thought it was behind me).

I got the ticket on a city car, anybody ever deal with tickets with them?

Any ideas how to get rid of this ticket appreciated. Thx

I do remember that, just making sure. I tried going online to see if I can try but didnít get too far.
