State Comptroller's Report Israeli Taxpayers Foot the Bill for IDF Parking Violations, State Comptroller Finds

Over five years, the army has barely fined personnel for parking violation fees incurred; municipalities being paid through defense budget; IDF says it views such violations with great importance.

For a period of five years, Israeli taxpayers picked up the tab for Israel Defense Forces soldiers who were ticketed for parking violations while driving army-issued cars, the state comptroller's report published Wednesday reveals. The report said the army has not employed any enforcement measures against personnel who were ticketed.
