Tel Aviv cyclists, pedestrians create road-sharing convention
Representatives of Tel Aviv's cycling and pedestrian communities, in collaboration with the municipality and the National Road Safety Authority, have formulated a convention to regulate a code of conduct regarding their respective forms of movement.

The convention aims to determine a set of rules that will make road use safer for all users, a statement from the municipality explained. For this purpose, the collaborators have launched a website at in which all interested parties can join in the discourse, vote on amendments and propose discussions about additional modes of transportation, such as electric bicycles and motorcycles.

"We live in a metropolis that is crowded and bustling, in parallel with infrastructure construction whose pace of implementation is not catching up with the reality of life – you still need patience and tolerance toward each other in this space," said Tel Aviv-Yafo deputy mayor Metial Lahavi, who oversees transportation.

"If everyone will work a bit for others, we will be able to live together safely in a confined space while considering the needs of others and benefit from a city with fewer vehicles, less pollution, less noise and more safety – with space for everyone."
