Driving in Egypt


I think the title speaks for itself, one thing everyone should know from day one! The taxi cabs in Egypt don’t care if they hit you and if they do they make the biggest scene in the world making it seem like it is the end of the world. I feel really sorry for the person who decided to draw any lines on any of the roads in Egypt, they mean nothing to anyone in Egypt! Another note most of the Taxi Cabs are either Fiats or Peugeots from the 60s and 70s, and they are made of complete steel which makes them invulnerable to 21st century vehicles.

Honking is second nature to everyone who drives there, and they always cut each other off, its complete insanity. The funniest thing I saw was when a police officer pointed at two different lanes to go forward at the same time which resulted it 4 car accident, nobody was hurt but it was funny nobody slowed down for the other person coming in the direction to their left, nobody backs away in Egypt.
