Drivers will no longer be required to use their headlights on interurban roads during the day, except for trucks, buses, and two-wheeled vehicles. The requirement was in effect between November 1 and March 31 to reduce accidents caused by poor visibility. Transportation Ministry spokesman Avner Ovadia reported a very high level of compliance with the regulation. Upwards of 95 percent of drivers use their headlights on intercity roads, he said. Approximately 50% also do so inside cities during the day, even though this is not required. The use of headlights will still be mandatory when visibility is poor, including under conditions of fog, rain, dust or smoke, Ovadia said.
