There was trafic lights in Beirut & outside Beirut (Antelias, Tripoli etc...) until 1975 and pepole used to respect them because policemen used to hand out tickets. No, chaos is not part of our culture. We are human beings who acquired bad habits and Lebanon needs some basic law inforcement. The same chaos would have happened in any place without an effective police force.
This is like Pakistan having "toll roads". What a joke and a what a way to fleece money off people. This is like the highway robbery in the bedouin days of old.
Once a tax is levied it is never repealed.
