Where are the traffic cops...when you need them?

Road safety commercials on the radio imply that most traffic accidents are caused by drivers who are too busy fiddling with their smartphones to pay attention to what’s happening on the road.

It was road-safety week in Israel last week and while there was a frequent stream of road-safety commercials emanating from electronic media, there didn’t seem to be any traffic police on hand in the streets of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv to help enforce the message.

According to what radio listeners were being told, more people have been killed in traffic accidents since the establishment of the state than the total number of people killed by terrorists and in the wars in which Israel participated. If that’s accurate, it’s a devastating piece of information.
