Penalties for traffic offences in Tel Aviv

Penalties for committing traffic offences in Israel are set not by the police but by the State Parliament.

In the case of a subpoena, the police may withdraw the offender’s driving license for 30 days under an administrative procedure.

Exceeding the speed limit within the city by 21-30 km/h or outside the city by 26-40 km/h $180

Speed limits

Having rented a car in Tel Aviv, you should strictly adhere to the speed limits below

  • 50 km/h in built-up areas;
  • 80 km/h outside built-up areas;
  • 100 km/h on suburban highways
  • 110 km/h on toll Highway 6.

Hidden cameras are installed on many roads. If you exceed the speed limit by less than 10km/h, no fine will be charged.

Parking

When renting a car in Tel Aviv, keep in mind that it will be difficult finding a parking space on the city’s busy streets. All the parking areas are marked with different colors:

    • blue and white means that it is paid or free parking;
    • red and white or red and yellow means no parking; the zone is only for public transport or for the disabled.

To use a paid parking zone, you need to buy a coupon from a vending machine or from one of the kiosks and attach it to the inside of the windshield. As a rule, you can park at white-blue zones free of charge from 18:00 PM to 7:00 AM and on Saturdays. In front of each of these zones are a panel displaying the parking cost for different times of the day. At some zones, there are machines where you can pay in cash or by credit card. The parking price can reach $4 per hour. There is also a parking space with a fixed cost of $7 to $9 for a day. However, for tourists hiring a vehicle in Tel Aviv, it is more profitable to pay for actual parking time used.

Permissible blood alcohol levels

The maximum permissible level of alcohol in the blood for driving in Tel Aviv is 0.5 ‰. An Israeli police officer may require you to take a test to determine your level of intoxication. It is advisable not to refuse taking such test because doing so is considered a serious offense and incurs more severe penalties, which include imprisonment.

Fuel cost

At local gas stations, drivers can buy diesel fuel and unleaded gasoline (91, 95 and 96). There is a limit of $50 when paying for fuel by credit card. There are no cash restrictions. To refuel a car, you need to enter the number of that car in the machine. If you experience problems, it is better you contact the staff at the filling station.

Average fuel cost in Tel Aviv

Gasoline 95 $2.09
Diesel fuel $2.04

Toll roads

Highway 6 is the country’s only toll road passing through Tel Aviv. To use it, you need to register in a special system and specify the number of your credit card. There are no checkpoints on the road. Tolls are calculated automatically and charged against the license plate of the vehicle, captured by the camera. The toll is deducted from the driver’s credit card. Tolls range from $1.30 to $7 depending on the length of the route.

Everybody should travel about the countries of Western Europe only by car. You'll get a lot of impressions and unexpected discoveries that are impossible with common tours. Usually I rent cars at the place of destination. Once there was no necessary car at the provider. And after that situation I began to use online booking sites. The choice is much larger, and the price doesn't differ from the price of the on-site rental. It's very convenient and profitable.

We had a great time in England. Despite the difference in the traffic direction, we got used to it quickly. Naturally, we rented a car via this site. Payment was also made via the electronic resource. There weren't delays or negative experience during the car receipt. I liked everything very much.

For a long time we\'ve been engaged in extreme driving. Recently we were in Saudi Arabia. We rode along the desert. It\'s especially beautiful at the end of the day. There were admiration and danger and a host of other things. We rented a car via bookingcar eu. It\'s a very useful site, because it compares all world providers and gives a full base of actual options. It is convenient that you can pay everything without fees directly on the site. There are excellent offers, which we always take.

I fell for a spontaneous desire and went to cities of France by car. I rented a car via this car aggregator, which has all offers from the well-known providers. There are wide choice, advanced options, payment on the site. Everything works stably and clearly. There were no problems with the car receipt and return. I recommend this resource to those who like to organize travel by themselves. By the way, everything is quite affordable.
