    Sometimes Palestinians throw rocks at buses, but only as a joke meant to spice the day for the drivers, not with the intention to hurt.

    The bus drivers of egged sometimes really try to race. It is advisable not to drive that fast in order to have enough safety margin to the physical limits in order to react unforeseen situations on the street.
    Slow down, egged drivers.
