Traffic in Cairo

On the surface, it appears that there are no rules, but there are. They just aren't written down. I've heard people marvel at how Americans follow traffic laws so diligently compared to other places, and I tell them it's because not following the rules is very expensive here- insurance, car repair, fines, injuries. After all, we drive long distances at high speeds so much of the time that following the rules is crucial. (via reddit)

Looks just like getting on the George Washington Bridge during rush hour. 12 lanes bottleneck into four lanes on the upper level (eight into three on the lower lever).

There's lines painted, but they're more like suggestions that nobody follows.

Here it is Sunday night.
