Parking in Israel is easy to find but becomes scarcer in the major cities of Tel-Aviv, Jerusalem, and Haifa. Smaller cities such as Be’er Sheva, Rishon Letzion, and Ashdod posses more open space resulting in less abundant parking designations. The most abundant parking indicators are the checkered color patterns on the edge of the sidewalks. Red/White indicates no parking. Red/Yellow designates that parking is not allowed. Blue/White allows parking. In most cases Blue/White parking requires a parking fee to be paid. The fee is paid at parking meters usually located within walking distance of the Blue/White parking spot. Even though one may find a Blue/White parking spot, it is important to find signs that permit parking to anyone. Some areas which are Blue/White will only permit certain residents of that area to park there. Signs are widely available but are only written in Hebrew.
