Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz called on motorists around the country, Sunday evening, to stay off the roads because of icy conditions.
Katz said, in a statement, "Due to the clearing of the sky and a plunge in temperatures, the roads are likely to be more dangerous than ever tonight. A layer of which will coat the roads could cause skidding. It's a real threat to life. Give up trips that are not necessary and those who must drive - please do so very carefully."
