Driving in Egypt

Post by DJKeefy »

Just to remind you so you keep within the law:

2704

Drive the wrong way down any road.
Stop and have a chat in the middle of the road.
Park your car in the middle of the road.
Turn all lights off at night.
Let your small son drive your car or motorbike.
Motorbikes are only for a max of 5 people (any more than this then you must sit all under 3 year olds on the petrol tank).
No stopping at junctions.
Dont use indicators.
Dont use your mirrors.
Pull straight out from a parked postion into the road without looking.
Drive anyway you want round a roundabout.
Always smoke and use your mobile while driving (a must for motorbikes).
There is no speed limit.
And the most important is to pip your horn at all times just for the sake of it.

Please add anymore I might have forgot :lol:

Remove all working instruments from the dashboard except for the radio or tape cassete which must always be blasting out Islamic religious messages or music. (applies mainly to taxis) ;)

If the roads are full just bump up onto the sidewalks, the tourists and pedestrians will move.
