The chaos on the streets of Cairo has worsened since last year's revolution that toppled Egypt's longtime president Hosni Mubarak.
Egypt's notorious traffic claims the lives of thousands of people every year. Drivers casually disrespect the discredited police force, which is rarely anywhere to be seen in the first place.
President Mohamed Morsi has listed traffic as second only to security among the top five priorities for his first 100 days in office.
Earlier this year, the World Bank agreed to loan Egypt $250m to improve public transport and traffic in Cairo. It willl also help in forming a new transport authority.
