It would be interesting to validate the sayings of our Minister of Interior, who stated yesterday that 85% of the accidents in Lebanon are due to speeding or reckless driving. [Link]

What about the conditions of the roads? The absence of signs and road lighting poles? The misplaced concrete separators? The 100 meters deep potholes? etc …

He also mentioned that Lebanese citizens should take good care of their cars and do the necessary check-ups.

If I am not mistaken, The “Mecanique” center in Hadath is supposed to do this check and last time I heard, corruption was all over this place and some guy almost killed a poor employee for failing his car despite the bribery offered.

The good news from yesterday’s press conference held by “KunHadi” is that the ISF were granted 800 helmets to wear them while on duty. Yay!
