… For everyone’s sake!

We received an email from a reader sharing with us his experience while driving in Lebanon after having spent years abroad. He is not only horrified by the crazy Lebanese driving but mostly with the Lebanese’s take on the seat belt, be it front or rear seat belts. The typical response you get here on wearing rear seatbelts is “wallaw men wara kamen? bale7a!”

I must say that i did not appreciate the need for those seatbelts until i’ve seen those commercials and there are many more [Video1, Video2, Video3]. I wish only that our dear ministry of interior focuses further on promoting awareness on such issues and others like texting while driving before giving us speeding tickets for going 60 kph on a 50 kph road.

Thanks Ralph!
