No room for pedestrians on Lebanon’s sidewalks.

How did that happen?
I just got these pictures from a friend. I am not sure if there are casualties but it looks big. The accident took place after Crepaway facing the newly open Sushi restaurant Tokyo.
I spotted this X-trail today with a Lebanese State Security plate number and the logo of a used cars dealership in Lebanon on the back. The only explanation I could come up with is that the guy works in State Security and put the plate on his personal vehicle but I don’t know if this is legal or not.
I thought I visit State Security’s website and email them about it but the frontpage wasn’t very encouraging.
I am not sure if I should be laughing at the car or that he’s still bragging about his BB Pin.
You can’t really blame the municipality or police officers as it’s very hard to spot a truck stationed in Marina Dbayyeh with all the buildings and towers there. On a serious note, the only place where trucks can hide is behind Emile Lahoud’s ugly Olympic pool, the one that cost us 18 million dollars yet was never finished.
I don’t know how reliable this information is, or who issued the warning, but authorities need to move fast and make sure it’s safe as the bridge is highly frequented. The last thing we need is another tragic incident in this country.

I don’t know what’s happening to people this week but that’s the third car I see that landed on the grass somehow. I am guessing they were speeding or probably trying to escape a pothole.

I saw this post on AlienInBeirut and thought I alert both male and female readers of the blog. I advise women to take Banet Taxi, a women-only taxi, to be on the safe side and not worry about a thing.
NEWS: There is a gang of 3 males (1 driver and 2 supposed passangers) robbing and attacking passengers in a service/taxi in the Achrafieh/Sin el-Fil area of Beirut.
Almost everyone I know in Beirut knows of someone who this has happened to, many of victims were slashed as well. Some friends even said that a couple of the victims were sandwiched into the back seat between the two male passengers who held a knife to them. Sometimes they only rob, sometimes they rob and slash the victim with the knife.
Please keep vigilant when taking a service/taxi and circulate this news as knowledge is our best form of protection and prevention at the moment until they are caught.
As a general rule, never get into a service which has 2 male passengers in it.

Believe it or not, if someone jumps off a building and lands on your car in Lebanon, it’s your car’s fault. If the person dies, you go to jail for 6 months.
This is a the first video that was revealed of the world’s longest continuous drift, set by Lebanese driver Abdo Feghali using a Chevrolet Camaro SS. Abdo drifted for a duration of 14.18 minutes covering a distance 11,180 meters. [RedBull]
I will post the video as soon as I find one.
Lebanese driver Abdo Feghali, best known for being Red Bull’s frontman at drifting events, has apparently just set the world record for the longest continuous drift, as certified by the Guiness Book of Records.
As news trickles in from the record attempt today morning at the skidpad in Yas Marina Abu Dhabi, Abdo Feghali managed to double the previous record, with a distance of more than 11 km using a Chevrolet Camaro SS. We assume he was going around in a large-diameter circle to keep the drift going in an area no larger than a football pitch. While the car matters little in a stunt like this, we’d be more interested to know what tyres he used for this feat, if he made them last twice as long! [Source]
