Road Safety in Israel

— by Flaura Koplin Winston, MD, PhD — See full article here.

As I traveled about Israel over the past two weeks, I captured some of Israel’s road safety work in action as well as daily life unfolding. In many communities there are dedicated bike lanes, separate from the vehicle and from pedestrians, but in areas where this isn’t possible, bikes either share the road with pedestrians (as in the photo to the right below) or with the cars.

There is a wide array of very creative and positive billboard signs to promote safety. The campaign from my friends at the Israel National Road Safety Authority has the tagline “Think Life” (Hoshvim Chaim).
