Israel: Traffic in Downtown Jerusalem

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Israel, Development

Israeli blogger Izzy Bee focuses on traffic problems in downtown Jerusalem here [1]. “Bartov has narrowed traffic lanes downtown so no ambulance or fire engine could possibly get to a medical emergency or a terrorist's bomb site. Concrete pillars prevent vehicles from pulling over to let them pass. Siren, schmiren: it's just a big bottleneck. Plus there's nowhere to park,” explains the blogger.
