Breaking with our usual custom of avoiding the Yom HaAtzma’ut traffic, the Shiputzim family hit the road today.
Flags were everywhere:
Even on police cars:
And electronic road signs:
There were other electronic signs as well:
(As always, click on the pictures for a closer look.)

Happy Yom HaAtzma’ut!
Happy birthday Israel and thanks for sharing these shots with us.
Ilana-Davita - I'm glad you enjoyed them. There's absolutely nothing like being in Israel for Yom HaAtzma'ut!
I even saw an Israeli flag on a van in Highland Park! (It may have been my son's Hebrew teacher).Glad you had a good day and enjoyed the flags and not the traffic. (those roads look empty to someone who has been on the Jersey shore - or in the middle of Jerusalem in a car).
As was commented there was no traffic, so you're hitting the road next year.SPYYMZ
Great shots! We also saw a bunch of those, but you're better at snapping photos while driving :)Motzei Chag Sameach!
Great pictures, to jpix I presume.
Leora - As it so happens, all these pictures were from Kvish 6 (the Trans-Israel Highway), where there was - as you correctly noted - barely any traffic. Elsewhere, however, was a completely different story. Let's just say that someone who is used to driving down to the Jersey shore in August would've felt right at home... :-)SPYYMZ - Time will tell... :-)Toby and Batya - Thanks!
Dropping in from Havel Havalim #264.Belatedly: beautiful... no, amazing. Here, you see one sometimes. Here or there... but nothing like this. May I be zochah to see it person someday soon.Belated moadim l'simcha from ICLW (International Comment Leaving Week) #163!
