The "Al-Ahram Weekly Online" reports that Egypt's Assembly is looking to implement new traffic laws designed to make traffic move more efficiently.

Among them is mandatory prison sentences of up to six months, if you're caught driving without a license...
Under the amendments anyone found driving without a valid licence will face a mandatory prison sentence not exceeding six months and a fine of between LE100 and LE500.
Major General Ahmed Diaaeddin, assistant to the minister of interior, says these news laws are designed to make penalties more commensurate with the gravity of the offense.

Well, I guess so!

  1. About the same as the UK, first offense in the UK up to £1000 fine and possible ban from driving, sounds strange since you still don't have a licence anyhow but it makes sense because: driving while banned, up to £5000 and 6 months in the clink. Plus whatever punishment for driving without insurance.

    Those are maximums though, like Egypt, you're only going to get the book thrown at you if you're dangerous or persistent.
