Road Safety Committee
The Knesset has this week set up a Road Safety Sub-Committee to examine a way of reducing road accidents in Israel according to the Jerusalem Post. The Committee will be chaired by the Kadima Knesset Member Robert Tibayev. This follows an 11% increase in road accidents in 2010.
The new committee was supported by Or Yarok the road safety organization that has run a campaign criticising the Transport Minister Israel Katz.
