Transportation Ministry officials may be rethinking the mandatory placement of "How's my driving?" stickers on company vehicles, recently released government documents have indicated.

While the Transportation Ministry added the use of such labels to the country's Traffic Ordinance in early 2012, the ministry's chief scientist is now in favor of canceling the requirement, according to a Knesset Research and Information Center report published by Dr. Yaniv Friedman on September 22.

The report discusses "the implementation of the law that requires those with vehicle fleets to attach stickers to their cars with information about reporting on inappropriate driving of their drivers" – known in much shorter terms as simply "Procedure 6," which was made mandatory in 2005.

Following Knesset approval in March 2012, the sticker requirement became part of the Traffic Ordinance, requiring the inclusion of a call center telephone number and charging employers with acquiring reports from that center, Friedman wrote. The amendment took effect in September 2012.
