How many times did you get stuck in traffic only to find out there were no obstacles on the road? We always expect to see an accident or some road works but the real reason for most of the traffic jams here in Lebanon are a**hole drivers cutting off people and driving recklessly in an attempt to get to their destination 2 minutes earlier.

These so-called “Phantom” traffic jams can be easily avoided if everyone drives less aggressively on the road, keeps a safety distance from the car in front and stick to the speed limits. I found this video online that perfectly explains this ripple effect.
