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 20 km/h or outside the city by 25 km/h $60
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.

We went fishing to popular Sevan. For the sake of convinience, we reserved a car and paid for it via the car aggregator. By the way, it was very cheap. There weren't problems with the receipt of the car at the destination place, although the agent tried to impose a paid insurance, but he yielded after learning that we had paid for it.

I love to visit unfamiliar places with my wife. Not so long ago, we returned from Greece. We traveled on a rented car and the price for the week was quite low. We found the car, reserved it and paid for it via this car aggregator. Upon the arrival in Athens, we got the clean car with a full tank without any problems. We drove out and looked at a large number of attractions without haste. We liked to travel by car.

I spent the weekend in Italy and didn't miss the opportunity to drive a rented sports car. Of course, at home of the most supercars there is no other way. I rented the car via this resource. I can't say that it is cheap, but not enormously expensive. For me, it's important that this is the only car search engine that has found the required car. The payment is direct without fees here. I deliberately asked the provider about the price at the destination place. There was no difference in price. I recommend it to everyone.

I have been using car aggregators for many years already, I've tried many of them, and this site has turned out to be the most accurate. It allows you to search for the best offers from the providers. Any problems either in the process of registration, rental payment or receipt of a car from the agent haven't occured. I recommend it.

We went to conquer the desert and flew to Dakar. We felt like real riders at the rally. We reserved the cars via this site in advance in order to get the necessary number of cars. We were pleased with a wide choice of cars, so each of us selected the car he liked. We paid for the cars directly and without fees via this resource as well. Everything was very good. In the future I'll use this portal with great pleasure.
