Handling traffic during Trump visit in Jerusalem
Israeli police

President Trump visited Jerusalem as part of an official first visit to Israel May 22-23, 2017. This presented many traffic related challenges, especially since things were dynamic, with many unexpected changes and delays.

The visit included four different Major Traffic Events (MTEs). All MTEs and road closures were uploaded independently by the IL police via the closure tool, affecting around around 400K users.


  • Waze users were routed with minimal issue throughout the city.
  • The police had a tool they could use independently to make sure users were updated and informed.
