New traffic sign on Negev roads: pay attention for wandering Camels.
The sign was placed by MAATZ (Israel's national authority for public construction) following a series of accidents, some fatal, between cars and road-crossing camels.
In addition to the setting of road signs, Police and local authority officials will stiffen the supervision of Bedouin shepherds in order to prevent their Camels from roaming free.
