Posted by Mutaz Gedalla

Living in Benghazi or any Libyan city means  chaos on the roads. To reduce jam traffic, we need to follow some regulations. Here, in this topic, some things we all should not do. 

9- Don’t use the Beep, Beep, Beep sound a lot (Horn,كلاكس)

Car_horn_1397248fPeople use Beeeeeeep sound a lot, especially at the traffic lights. Many people get annoyed with this sound. Don’t use it always. Use is just when you need it.

8- Don’t cut people off

7- Don’t  constantly change lanes

Don't Change your LaneI have written about driving in lanes topic. Please stay at your lane and don’t change your lane unless you use your signal light.

6- Don’t get in small spaces

PrintUsually the roads and highways are divided  to 2-3 lanes. Every lane with one car. However, many people drive two cars in one lane, which results slower traffic movement.

5- Don’t Block the right turn in red light

Block the right tAt the red light stop, Don’t block the right turn. Be patient and stop in the right lane. Please don’t block the lane.

4- Don’t stop in the wrong lane

Don't turn in the wrong lTo turn left at the traffic light, you should stop in the left lane or in the middle lane. Please, Don’t stop in the last lane.

3- Don’t cross Red light in

Red Light All Libyans know that. Stop in the red light.

2- Don’t through your trash out of the window

    I hate #5! It’s so selfish and you can’t do anything until the light turns green, so frustrating. Road rage and ignorance of traffic laws is a big problem in Libya.

    I totally agree with you! Most people in Arab country don’t respect the pedestrians no matter what!

    Mutaz… what it do! That was an interesting read. I especially like the GIF of the guy from office spaces. Reminds me of my frustrations driving over here in the states….I see all 10 things happen every day on my daily commute. Make me wonder if flying cars will resolve these issues? haha. Hope all is going well. The site is looking good and remember to keep on posting!. Maybe one of these days I will find time to finish my site.
