State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss criticized Israel's traffic judges on Tuesday, saying that "the laws against traffic offenders are good, but the punishments are not carried out properly." Speaking at a special meeting of the Knesset's State Control Committee in honor of Road Safety Day, Lindenstrauss contended that "drivers with dozens of violations return to the streets, and the fines that the court imposes are not appropriate for the war on traffic accidents."
