Many drivers have been tempted to ignore the warning signs about parking restrictions at airport drop-off zones in order to wave their loved ones off.
But a new video has highlighted just how quickly that decision could leave you stranded and out of pocket.
Amazing footage shows a tow truck at what is thought to be a Turkish airport scooping up a car and taking it away in under a minute.

The video, which has been viewed more than half a million times on YouTube, shows a pick-up truck that reportedly polices the departures zone every five minutes.
As the car is parked without a driver, the truck immediately confiscates the vehicle.
The speed of the manoeuvre is lightning quick. The tow truck parks up next to the car, lowers two metal arms and lifts the car onto its rear - and begins to move off with just under 60 seconds on the clock.
Turkish airport security is especially vigilant at the moment because of a series of terror attacks in the country.
In June, three suicide bombers hit Istanbul's Ataturk airport, which killed 41 people and left 239 people injured.
