An initiative for operating a municipal bus line on Friday nights, to drive young revels to the clubs, pubs, and dance halls in town and back, has been frozen at the Tel Aviv Municipality for about a year. Mayor Ron Huldai objects to the initiative, under pressure from the haredi (ultra-orthodox) factions. A 2009 report by the Tel Aviv Municipality shows that more accidents involving people in the 17-24 age group occurred on Fridays and Saturdays than on the other days of the week. Public transportation does not operated from sunset Friday to slightly after sunset Saturday, due to the requirements of the orthodox Jew minority. (Hebrew)
