Driving in Jordan

A question to be asked to those who walk in the street especially those who walks in group of three or four and they decide to walk in the middle of the street, DO YOU HAVE FUCKING TIRES ?

If so then the Central Traffic Directorate have to implement a new numbering system for those people, something like sticking a thick-headed-man number plat.

Driving in Jordan is so stressing, it’s not surprising to see some teenagers doing some semi-drift around one of our 8th circles while the traffic officer smoking instead of stopping them, I wonder if he’s getting paid to relax and smoke or to control traffic, stopping idiots and fining them.

I have my car for less than a month and it’s my first driving experience and I can confirm it’s so stressing to drive in Amman, speeding in the right-lane seems to be acceptable, crossing the road at the entrance or the exist of the tunnel seems to be a habit, ignoring the traffic light in Al-Bayader makes sense.

Driving in Wadi Saqra HIGHWAY is a battle and it’s matter of life and death, a matter of fighting with public buses not for anything but to avoid getting killed.

We definitely need a new traffic regulations, something like You can hit anyone crossing the road at the entrance or the exist of any tunnel ESPECIALLY that we have BIG WARNING SIGN and we are almost begging people not to cross from there but they still do that, so please take it as a responsibility of controlling Jordan’s population by killing anyone cross from there

Finally, Jordanian defines the Nanosecond as the time between the green light of traffic light and hearing the loads of laud horns.
