Because there is no public transport on the sabbath a lot of Israelis who otherwise would not have a car do own one. There by putting more Co2 into the atmosphere polluting the air of Israel, and therefore the planet. I think that doing harm to what religious people regard as God's creation. Is a far greater sin than running public transport on the sabbath. As a mere humble agnostic who cannot afford a car. So I'm forced to spend Saturday at home, I think I have a point.
