Hi Amy

Would you please rephrase the underlined sentence in the attached snapshot?


Thanks

Best,

Hossein Saeedi

Answer
Hi Hossein,

Israeli drivers would rather end up in the hospital than let someone cut them off on the highway.

This is about Israeli drivers reckless driving style.

They'd rather jeopardize their lives (thus end up in the hospital) than allow other drivers to cut in front of them on the highway.

Let me know if this answers your question.

Cheers,

Amy
