1)      If you ever want to drink and drive, simply take a cab to an arcade center.

2)      In Warri (Delta state, Nigeria) cars are referred to as ‘iron’.

3)      90% of Mobile offices in Nigeria are owned by driving schools.

4)      An average policeman wants to be feared and ‘appreciated’.

5)      An average FRSC marshal wants to be respected and acknowledged.

6)      Smoking and driving is against the law in Lagos, but it doesn’t mean you can’t drive and smoke the whole place.

7)      If you are a couple and both your licences are expired, be wise enough to let the lady take the wheel.

cool      Driving your own car can be expensive; but so is spending a quarter of your salary on laundry.

9)      In Nigeria a fairly used imported car is referred to as ‘tokunbo’, while locally used tokunbo cars are referred to as ‘cabs’.

10)   The only 2 objects visible to the driver of an unloaded trailer are the truck’s accelerator pedal and the black asphalt road surface.

11)   You can as well hand-down your bag and mobile phone if you are hell bent on buying gala beyond 8pm in traffic.

12)   The only type of mechanic to trust is the one that smiles and acknowledges the fact that you outsmarted him whenever he plays dirty.

13)   An average car wash management in Nigeria hires and fires incessantly because of how easy it is to steal when you leave your car to be washed.

14)   The surest way to save fuel in a congested city like Lagos is to invest in good car batteries or great hang-out spots.

15)   Before you decide to take alternative routes at anytime, make sure you find at least 2 commercial buses and at least a cab headed in that direction, else the road is blocked as well.

16)   From Monday to Fridays you are the ‘oga’ to mechanics, but on Saturdays they become the ogas.

17)  In Nigeria every car is a potential towing vehicle; it all depends on how far the owner is willing to go.

Lagos drivers on speed lane behave as if the road and their life belong to them, and don't mind trafficators of drivers in front of them.

After the policeman extorts money from you he expects you to become his friend as an appreciation for bringing down his "fee" for your offense.
Re: Funny Driving Facts by Iranoladun(f): 1:55pm On Dec 18, 2012
You must know how to dribble round Okada (commercial motorbike), pedestrian and Marwa (Tricycle) if you must drive on most Lagos road cool

The fear of LASTMA, FRSC, Police is the beginning of wisdom. When you sight them from afar you better 'behave' especially when weekend is approaching or in December when everyone of the corrupt official is looking for the 'maga' that will 'pay' their christmas bonus grin

Not funny but useful. In the new era of free market fuel tow the okada line at the gas station no matter how long it is. The meter is least likely to be doctored.

In traffic the outer lane is more likely to be occupied by scurrying commercial vehicles while the inner lane by L - plates and executives who take their time. Incidentally this is where vendors stay in the morning and muggers at night.

If u buy a Nigeria used car, its called hand to hand or change of ownership, not cabs.
Re: Funny Driving Facts by lukaino(m): 3:19pm On Dec 18, 2012
In Lagos, patronise only fuel stations where you see taxi or danfos buying fuel, it means their pump measure is better

21. Ibadan Taxis are mostly worn out vehicles. Their drivers are unapologetic, abusive & don't always have change.
If you are alighting, make sure your dress is not hooked with a metal on the sit so that it won't damage it. Moreso, if you have not taken your breakfast, don't board a wrecked Taxi in Ibadan cos it's gonna turn up your digestive system.

22. Abeokuta Taxi drivers are careless. They can slow down suddenly & park without indicating whenever they sight a passenger. They are fond of counting/sorting money while driving. Infact, they usually stop in the middle of the road to pick/drop a passenger.
