In Lagos, traffic is has become an unavoidable part of our daily lives. Every decision you make is determined by whether the traffic makes it feasible.
That Lagos is populous is already a known fact, over 21m people live here, but the congestion on the city’s roads is due to other factors, too – and its effects on life there now woven into its culture.
I once heard someone say Lagos is essentially two cities in one. You can’t compare Lagos to any other state in terms of traffic.
As if Lagos traffic is not stressful enough on its own, you are likely to meet one of these characters who take it upon themselves to just frustrate your life while in traffic.
