Many Jordanians, expats and tourists would describe driving in Jordan as “scary and life-endangering.”
Sadly, a video of a bus driver driving in the opposite direction on a busy road in the Zizya area in Amman did not leave much space for arguing otherwise.
The video was taken by a passenger on the other side of the road, who later shared it on social media.
Many Jordanian social media users argued that the driver must have gotten his driver’s licence by “wasta” (nepotism), while others said that there are plenty more drivers like him in the country.
It is alarming to see a public transport bus driver risking the lives of his passengers and others in incoming cars, without worrying about the repercussions of his actions.
The fine for driving in the opposite direction on a road separated by an island can go up to JD200.
