Every time I am stuck in traffic on the maritime road between Nahr el Kalb and Kaslik, there are assholes who try to go the wrong way, then cut people off and make traffic even worse. I’ve tweeted at the ISF several times before asking them to patrol this road and fine these drivers and it seems they’ve finally decided to do so!
As you can see in the pictures, police cars were deployed along the road and cones were put in the middle of the road. Needless to say, it took us less time to get to Jounieh.
Great job from the ISF! I hope they keep doing it though or just put cones or separators along the way.

I was told about this circuit a week ago and I just looked it up and found it on Facebook. Racing Park Mtein is expected to open within weeks from now and is presumably the biggest kart track in the Middle East.
Even though Mtein is a bit far, but we needed a new karting track in Lebanon and the circuit looks amazing. I can’t wait to give it a try!

Bring back those girls lol!
I am joining the Lotus car owners in Lebanon for a ride tomorrow from Beirut to Warde in Kfardebian and I will get the chance to drive one of the cars (Lotus Evora) which is pretty awesome!
I will be posting pictures on my Instagram [LeNajib] so follow me for updates!
The vehicle’s unique model number should help you lol!
The Lykan is a bad ass super-car but we have yet to see it racing or speeding on a track. The only video that came out in November shows nothing and the engine sounds were pretty dull.
They should let Top Gear review it.
LBCI shared today a security camera footage showing the moment Toufic Moawad’s Audi Q7 crashed into a truck on the Dora highway. Looking at the video, and regardless whether the drive had been drinking or fell asleep or was speeding, this truck should not be parked that way on the freaking highway! Moreover and like Yasa has pointed out in the picture below, Toufic could have survived the crash if the proper road safety measures were taken on the back of the truck.
In all cases, whatever we say won’t bring back Toufic who was loved and admired in his hometown.
May he rest in peace.
Let’s see how they are going to celebrate their loss to Mexico tonight.
It shouldn’t be so hard for the police to spot and stop this car. After all, aside from not having any plate number, he definitely didn’t pass the “Mecanique” if he ever went there.
It took me almost 2 hours to get to work today because the maritime road in front of the ISF HQ in Dbayyeh was closed due to the military parade planned for their 153rd anniversary. The traffic had almost reached Zouk and cars were barely moving. To make things even worse, the road from Annahar bldg in Beirut was closed due to the parliament session.
The police ended up opening Dbayyeh’s road after realizing the traffic they’ve caused, which is definitely a good sign, but I urge our interior minister, who’s a pragmatic person from what I’ve seen, to put an end to these catastrophic and badly timed road closures. Traffic on a Monday morning is always bad, so it’s definitely not the best day to be closing down busy roads. Celebrations should be strictly held on Sunday mornings or any day of the week in a remote area.
