Israeli police are sticking phosphorescent strips on the bodies of camels in an attempt to stop fatal collisions between them and motorised pick-up trucks. In the last two years, 10 people have died in camel-related traffic accidents and more than 50 people have been seriously injured. Yossi Golan, commander of the Dimona police district in the eastern Negev, said, 'We see it as a useful adjunct to the camel safety measures we already have in place - warning signs and guard rails at particularly dangerous road crossings.'
