Traffic Information

When heading out of Jerusalem highways will have signs in both Hebrew and English, making road trips rather easy. Route 1 is the main road leading from Jerusalem to destinations west on the Mediterranean such as Tel Aviv in West and east to the Dead Sea. It is also a convenient route to downtown and West Jerusalem. If heading to East Jerusalem the Route 443 can be a better, less congested option.

During in Jerusalem often means navigating narrow streets and tight parking spaces. Parking on the street in Jerusalem is strictly enforced so be careful not to overstay at a paid parking space or you will likely return to find a fine on your windshield. Red and white painted curbs indicate parking is prohibited, blue and white painted curbs signify a legal, paid parking spot. Parking lots and garages are always a good option even if their hourly rates tend to cost more.
