I was happy to get to work in less than 25 minutes today, but I did not understand why there was no traffic at all. Only schools are off on All Saints day while all businesses and universities are open. Is it possible that schools are causing all this traffic everyday?

It doesn’t really make sense as you don’t see that many school buses from Jounieh to Beirut and most of the traffic schools cause is around the school not on the highway.

Nevertheless, if that’s the case, then the solution to everyday traffic is quite simple:
– Either let schools start an hour early or let businesses and universities start at 9 am.

Happy All Saints day to everyone!
