  1. BDE. So sad. Was just E.Y. People drive like vilde chayis. Including and especially bus drivers that transport so many of the population. These drivers need heavy fines to stop the madness.

  2. Israelis truly drive like wilde chayis on roads which do not compare with the American road system. I had a friend who took back to his yeshiva his and collided head on with a truck and he and hisson lost their lives

  3. In the Mistake of Israel around 300 people die a year in car accidents, about 70x more than die via terrorism, but what do we talk about, where does the government spend our money? 800 people die from second hand smoke, yet Israelis smoke like chimneys. I watch a guy every morning smoke in front of his small children as they wait for the bus. He blows smoke in their faces. Crazy society.
