Lagos, unarguably is one of the most populated cities in Nigeria, with over 21 million people dwelling in it either as their place of hustle, jobs or home. Lagos harbours in all types of people across Nigeria, Lagos is all accepting, doesn’t discriminate at all. Lol!
However, the Traffic situation wouldn’t have gotten out of hand if the number of vehicles was not as many as it is, from the molues, danfos, red bus, BRT, okada, keke napep not forgetting hundreds of thousands of private cars…you can just imagine. Even with the traffic lights, road markings, road marshals the rest, you will still imagine what the cause of traffic is.
Lagosians involve traffic into their daily schedule because the beginning of the consideration of Lagos traffic in your daily life, the wiser.
Like the traffic situation isn’t enough, here are 5 people you are likely to meet in a Lagos traffic.
- THE ONES ALWAYS BEGGING TO CHANGE LANES.
Theseset of people are always inconclusive on which lane to maintain because they always feel this lane is better and when they are there they feel the other lane is better. Their major characteristic is a pity face and begging, you just have to allow them else they might cry. Lol!
2. THE ONE THAT MUST BUY SOMETHING FROM EVERY HAWKER.
Did i mention that hawking in Lagos traffic is a live saver, buying that chilled drink while munching on that crunchy chips in a tiring Lagos traffic, so this category of people buys virtually almost everything in traffic thereby causing other cars to slow down. They don’t joke with their stomach, refreshment galore.
3. THOSE WHO TAKE IT UPON THEMSELVES TO BECOME TRAFFIC COORDINATORS.
These are people we call good citizens of the world, they come down from their cars to control traffic but do not forget once their car can pass through, their work is done, lol.. you will hear something like, ‘oga please move small, let my car pass through and one their car passes through, the rest of you can sort yourselves out.
4. THE ONE WHO WILL COME DOWN AND PRATICE TAEKWANDO BECAUSE YOU HIT THEIR CAR.
Don’t mess with this category of people, they are a combination of anger and frustration, they can come down and fight you for the smallest mistake, so watch it when next you drive.
5. HILARIOUS ONES THAT WILL TURN THEIR HORNS TO TOYS.
These ones are simply just fed up of the situation and decide to channel their frustration to honking of horns. Even if you try to caution them, they wont listen,’ is it your horn’ that’s what their facial expression will read. The best thing to is whine up and play music because those horns can deafen the ear drums.
Well i am sure you must have run into at least one of them during traffic, drop your comments below, lets know your thoughts.
