While not ignoring threats of terrorism, the State Department cautions tourists to be wary of Israeli drivers. The guide says:
Israeli roads and highways tend to be crowded, especially in urban areas. Aggressive driving is a serious problem and many drivers fail to maintain safe following distances or signal before changing lanes or making turns. Drivers are also prone to stop suddenly on roads without warning, especially in the right lane. Drivers should use caution, as Israel has a high rate of fatalities from automobile accidents.Ynet News reports that the State Department also warns American tourists of car break-ins, especially in beach areas and national parks, particularly in Caesarea. It points out that there has been an increase in pickpocketing incidents in cities and cemeteries throughout the country.
