There are many weird things that I see happening in traffic in Jeddah all the time that I haven't seen in other countries that I have been to. This photo shows a driving phenomenon in Saudi Arabia that always miffs me. The car in the center is actually waiting at a red light in front of several lanes of traffic that you can see behind him. I have seen other cars do this practically every day. I've even seen cars drive onto the sidewalk in order to gain this position at a red light. Enforcement of traffic laws in the kingdom seems to be non-existent. The lack of traffic enforcement in Saudi Arabia is being used as one of the many eye-rolling reasons given why women shouldn't be allowed to drive in this country.
