Traffic lawless in Beirut…

semaforo beirut

One of the biggest dangers in Lebanon and cause of thousands deaths per year is traffic. Traffic officers are almost inexistent and when they exist they just pose next to a traffic light with a cigarette in their left hand and play with their mobile with the right one, ignoring clashes, speed, traffic jam or insults around him. French traffic officers came to organize not long time ago some intensive courses about how to “manage the traffic”, but apparently it did not improve too much.

Besides the absence of regulations, there is a much more important problem and is the consumption of alcohol combined with young drivers which play rallies in the city main streets every weekend and very often end up in clash followed by fight if not the cemetery.

Finally, today coming back home I bump into a very crazy traffic light…and I scape from an accident…Enjoy the picture…
