City of the cyclists: These Israeli boys ride their bikes down an empty motorway in Tel Aviv
Ghost town: There can't be many days in the year when boys on BMX bikes rule the roads
Israel - There can’t be many days in the year when pedestrians, cyclists - and skateboarders - reign supreme on some of Israel’s busiest roads.
In a scene which could have come straight from a movie, there isn’t a car in sight as families, teenagers and Rabbis freely roam the empty streets.
On any other day, you might expect the highways in and around Jerusalem and Tel Aviv to be teeming with traffic, choking fumes rising above the cityscape.
But thanks to the holiest Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur the streets are empty and the air is clear, allowing many to enjoy a rare car-free day.
