Tel Aviv bans horse-drawn carriages

Following six-year struggle, city becomes first in country to prohibit entry of horse-drawn carriages

Tel Aviv has become the first city in Israel to prohibit the entry of horse-drawn carriages into its territory.


The Tel Aviv Municipality and the Ministry of Transportation recently completed the posting of 23 road signs across the city's southern entry routes which ban the entry of horses.


The step completes a six-year long struggle to remove metal traders and junk peddlers from the city, who do their business using horse-drawn carriages.


Attorney Reuven Ladiansky, who was elected as a Tel Aviv Municipality representative a year ago together with his Latet Lihyot (Let Live) movement, led the campaign against horse labor in the city.


He was joined by Councilman Dr. Moshe Tiomkin, who acts as head of the municipality's Transport & Parking Authority.
