Why does METUNA exist?
Metuna was founded in 1993 as the direct result of the catastrophic conditions on Israeli roads. Even today after nine years, at least 2000 families are traumatised in one year by the death or serious injury of a loved one. The hospitals treat more road casualties than victims of enemy hostilities, civilian or military.
Who are the people behind METUNA?
The board of METUNA consists of doctors, scientists and other professionals whose work is published internationally and who participate in and organise conferences and workshops for both traffic experts and students in Israel and internationally. They are the voice and conscience of the people who are daily reminded of the horrors on our roads.
