The Scoop: Boy Creates Camel Vests to Help Save Lives

A seven-year-old in Tel-Aviv, Israel has created a bright yellow camel vest with the help of his father in an effort to prevent the many car crashes that happen when camels cross the road.

The boy came up with the idea for the vest as part of a school project after hearing about a driver who was killed in a collision with a camel in the desert. Israeli police say 10 motorists have been killed in the last 10 years after colliding with stray camels in Israel, according to Reuters. Apparently, similar accidents have been reported in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates.

The father-son design team doesn't have any plans to market the vests, but they hope others will adopt the idea and help save lives.

oh this is good! but camel accidents aren't that common here in U.A.E. I think it has something to do with the 50,000 Dhs fine you get if you hit a camel.
