Israel Warnings and Dangers: 86 reviews and 63 photos


The drivers in Israel are known for not being so patient and basicaly driving as "if they own the road" if you know what i mean.
So if there's any danger here that would be it.
Drive slow though not too slow... we dont have time here... we're always in a rush... people wont like the fact that a slow driver is
preventing them of driving as fast as they want.

Zebra crossing
Unfortinately in this aspect Israel is definitely behind the west...
Dont take it as an obviouse thing that car would stop and let you cross the road while you're standing near the zebra crosss and waiting !
I must admit that the first time i saw a "normal" drivers was in Europe, mostly in London, before i was even on the edge of the road Cars were already stopping, i remember i was in a shock ! i wish it would have been like that here but its not So Please BE CAREFUL when you're about to cross the road, drivers here can be really crazy.
