  1. This is no secret at all.
    Everybody knows that a few minutes before the Shkiah, you need to stay 50 feet away from any street because almost everybody is flying at speeds close to 90 mph.

  2. On Friday at 18 minutes before sunset, let us all try our best to refrain from driving.
    This can be a real Zechus for the Niftar and for us .

  3. This is so sad. I have been driving for many years and I am a good driver. However, when people ask me if I like to drive they are surprised when I say that I hate to drive. When I drive I always have the feeling that I am driving a dangerous loaded weapon and I can’t let my guard down for one second.

  4. It’s no longer a secret: colossal means have been put in place to prevent people from getting married and having a family and this is nothing new.
