Can someone explain to me why driving in Israel is so dangerous? Is it because of the lack of traffic patrol officers? Here in California, we are ticketed for not using signals, not coming to a COMPLETE STOP at a stop sign, etc. Cops are everywhere and people are respectful, for the most part, except for an occasional moron. Why can't Israel hire more police to enforce traffic laws? If you were fined each time you broke the law, maybe the issue would improve. I personally know of two people who died in Israel in a traffic accident while on vacation--their bodies remained in Israel. How tragic for the family that their loved ones never came home again.
