Tourist Tip #187 Scooter Etiquette in Israel

Racing past traffic on two wheels instead of four may make you feel invincible. But slow down and take note: all the same rules apply.

Congestion in Israel's city centers can be onerous, to say the least.

Or, throwing the accident stats to the devil, you buy – or rent – a scooter.
