I was reading about LA authorities planning to close Interstate 405 for 53 hours for some maintenance work and the campaign they’ve done to keep LA citizens from using their cars to avoid what they called “Carmageddon”. [Link]

I am sure the Lebanese authorities in charge of our roads are laughing at those Americans. Weeks of campaigns to prevent people from getting stuck in traffic and alarming them to stay home just because of some works on the highway??

Where’s the element of surprise if we tell people about upcoming road works?

Where’s the fun if we don’t let people get stuck in traffic unexpectedly for hours?

PS: Heading towards the weekly Dora-Casino du Liban carmageddon in 2 hours time if anyone likes to join me.
