Abraham Fund program seeks to decrease Israeli Arab traffic accident rate

Arab experts and educators met with the Israeli police in Nazareth on Thursday to discuss ways to reduce the disproportionally high number of traffic accidents in the sector.

Around 40 percent of those injured or killed in traffic accidents are Arabs and while 16% of Israeli drivers are Arabs, they make up 30% of those injured or killed, Amnon Beeri-Sulitzeanu, co-executive director of the Abraham Fund, an NGO dedicated to promoting equality and coexistence between Arab and Jewish citizens, told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday.
