Traffic Reports, Israel Style

Hwy443In Baltimore, I had Detour Dave's traffic reports. In Israel, I have instead the US State Dept keeping tabs on Route 443:

U.S. Government personnel and family members are permitted both official and personal travel on Route 443 between Modi'in and Jerusalem without prior notification, during daylight hours only. All other personal travel in the West Bank, unless specifically authorized for mission-approved purposes, is prohibited.

Israel's security services have already forbidden Prime Minister Netanyahu from traveling on Route 443 due to elevated threat levels since the winding road was re-opened to Palestinians in May.

YNet News finds stone-throwing an on-going problem, but I'm sure Rachel Shabi has no worries using the road at night.
