16 Street Signs Egypt Desperately Needs

We mean, where else in the world do you suddenly go flying after hitting a geometrically incorrect speed bump or have to navigate around sheep in the street?

Travelling from point A to point B in Egypt is easier said than done. Poorly maintained roads, lack of traffic law enforcement, and a joke disguised as a driving exam all contribute to unacceptably high rate of fatal accidents. Aside from avoiding death, drivers can also find themselves easily lost as many of the street signs seem misleading, often requiring one to pull over to understand. In an effort to increase safety and clarity, we decided to compile a list of street signs that are desperately needed to forewarn drivers and even pedestrians of daily Egyptian encounters on their treacherous roads.
