Wen el Dawle?

I’ve always wondered why these crazy motorists are not stopped by the cops specially that they perform their stunts on the highway. Well it seems the cops don’t notice them somehow.

PS: I am still finding this picture hard to believe and trying to check if it could be fake or not, even though it was posted by Yasa.

ISF Traffic Management On The Zouk – Kaslik Maritime Road

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!

Video Showing Zghorta’s Mayor Toufic Moawad Fatal Car Crash

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.
