Photos of Egypt: What Causes a Cairo Traffic Jam?

You never know what's holding up traffic in Cairo until you reach the source.

It could be a car broken-down on the side of the road.

It could be a bottleneck of four lanes of traffic trying to fit onto a two-lane bridge.

Or it could be an accident and people are slowing down to gawk at the argument going on. Because even just a fender bender like this one is a great reason to yell and wave your arms around... and hold up traffic.

I guess maybe it makes them feel important.
