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
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
|Re: Funny Driving Facts by Reference(m): 1:55pm On Dec 18, 2012|
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
|Re: Funny Driving Facts by folahann(m): 6:28pm On Dec 18, 2012|
Very true. Every damn car is a potential towing vehicle.

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.
