Many of the buses lack rear lights.
This is dangerous because the lights indicate the break, the reverse and the intended direction of the bus. If rear lights are absent the vehicles behind the bus would be more prone to do accidents with the bus or with each other. The missing of rear lights is a violation to the Lebanese traffic law
