The city of Tel Aviv has put its foot down, literally. No more bike riding in Rabin Square.
Lawmakers have launched a new initiative to issue tickets to bicyclists who cross the line and ride in the wrong place starting Sunday, May 1.
According to a new city law, bike riders will be ticketed and fined for riding in Rabin Square. Fines already are in place for riding on the sidewalks and all the other places they have been barred from until this point.
There are bike lanes on all the major roadways in Tel Aviv.
