Two new bills written to protect victims of hit and run accidents by toughening punishments for drivers who cause them are scheduled to be passed in the Knesset in the coming days, MK Ze'ev Bielski (Kadima) said Sunday.

Referring to the fatal hit-and-run that claimed the lives of a couple in their 30s on Sunday, Bielski said the accident was another one in the recent "chain of accidents where the driver has left the injured on the road."
