Traffic LIGHT SURPRISE

Traffic LIGHT SURPRISE


When we cross traffic lights and witness who people disobey them, we are bond to think of many questions such as:
WHY are traffic lights in Lebanese cities continuously disobeyed in such a dangerous manner?
Is this non respectful attitude to the traffic lights normal?
Is it normal for foreigners to have to disobey traffic lights for the first time in their lives, due to the fear of being hit by a reckless driver who has no intention of decreasing speed when the approaching a traffic light?

Many cities in Lebanon have traffic lights and are touristic attractions.  We are in urgent need to show the world that traffic laws are being implemented in Beirut 2007.
We need to be able to say “LUBNAN MNAWWAR” meaning Lebanon enlightened and see that our traffic light are continuously functional with no problems due to electricity cut-back.
Electricity cut-backs affects the operation of traffic lights whereby their functions simply cease until the electricity returns, however we call for urgent actions.  It is deemed necessary for ELECTRICITE DU LIBAN to find solutions to the electricity cut-back that is affecting the lights and persuading the Lebanese citizen to disobey traffic lights because of its irregular supply.  Why is this issue that so affects tourism and the income it generates not given top priority?

We call for more highlight on such a vital issue of road safety.  According to the Scientific Research Foundation (SRF), many of the accidents and their resulting deaths occur on these crossings. Furthermore, is it not acceptable to place traffic lights on road crossings without ensuring regular maintenance?
Major cities such as Beirut, Tripoli and TYR are with no doubt in great need for these traffic lights to regulate the flow of traffic. However, they are in need of lights that work according to international standards.

When is Beirut going to witness regular maintenance for its installed traffic lights? THIS is the citizens right from both municipality and the government levels together.
Why should the citizen accept what the municipality or the government are paying out of their taxation to install traffic lights and then watch as they become useless due to lack of maintenance; encouraging the public to disobey the lights and hence the law leading to risking their lives?
This whole fiasco ironically increases when it comes to fine implementation with regard to disobeying the traffic lights.

We do not accept members of the parliament who are entrusted with the general enforcement of laws to disobey those of traffic lights.
