Driving in Lagos is dancing on the shores of hell and flashing your Bottom at the devil

Mad people are everywhere. Bleeding idiota making u-turns while babbling on the phone

Trailers with no brake lights driving like they are playing need for speed underground

Kombi bus drivers who feel their buses can shrink at will to squeeze through a ten centimetre gap

underage fools driving gigantic cars and completely forgetting what big brother told them to do, like hold onto your lane when merging for fukks sakes

Basterd mutherfusking police as$holeS demanding for money at every stop

Lastma need i say more

area boys threatening to break ya windscreen

thieves at akpongbon and ketu, many disguised as police and armed with crude spike strips

suicido-homicidal maniac okada riders who are insane enough to use their front wheels to block trailers

trailers with no brakes (NO JOKE. THE BASTERDS RELY ON E-BRAKING AND HANDBRAKES TO STOP. REMEMBER THIS NEXT TIME U TRY TO CLAIM RIGHT OF WAY AT A T )

look driving in lagos is simply the lesser evil when compared to actually putting your life into the hands of the same maniacal okada/bus/taxi drivers we just talked about. Gord save us

Lagos driving is pure hell 24/7. It is not safe. It is best if you can get a driver. There are constant go slows. You are scared of being descended on while stuff in traffic by armed robbers. I saw drive a "hoopdee", if you can, and don't flaunt anything. You will just be attracting them to you. They are everywhere from clean cut(excellent english) to hood rats prowling. As much as possible, blend in with the crowd.

Nothings changed except the locations/modes of operation. Hear stories every now and then but havent had a bad experience o, thank God. Important -shine your eye. The senseless and crazy! driving, and resulting traffic situation are my major headaches, and change looks nowhere round the corner.

Oh, how I dislike Lagos driving! You only enjoy the drive within a particular time window on some days in some given select areas and even then, anything can happen.

And those bloody danfo buses?! Lagos na wa!
