Questions to be asked:
1. Was there a pedestrian bridge nearby?

2. Was there any speed limit on boldly written on the said road?

3. Was the person knocked down on a zebra crossing?

4. Is the road an expressway?

only in Nigeria will a driver see a pedestrian crossing, instead of him/her to slow down, decides to speed up

No functioning traffic law in Nigeria

shithole country

What was the guy doing on the road?

That bridge has a side walk .....most people today jaywalk and dare cars and bikes....lucky he did not die, he would have learnt a good lesson.

The laws should be amended to deal with jaywalkers.....people walk practically right on the road ...when you horn they look at you with disdain

If the guy were speeding the idiot on the road would have been killed!

I re-learnt how to drive in the UK. I took driving lessons for 1year so I could delete my Nigerian style of driving from my head. However there are great differences in the types of road. The place they call expressway is always outside of town. No houses in that area. So no pedestrians can even get there. No foot bridge or zebra crossing there.
-
The one they call town road is the single lane road with zebra crossing. They hardly ever build foot bridge because it is hard for anybody to be climbing steps up and down. Even if you don't want to read speed limit there are so many traffic lights that you can't even speed.
-
Pedestrian kerb is clearly cut from road. And of course no sand or potholes anywhere.
-
My instructor told me DO NOT drive
1. If you are tired
2. If you are hungry
3. If you are angry/quarrelling
4. If you took medicines
5. Stop driving and rest every 2 hrs.
(And these guys don't even have hot sun in their country.)
-
Since I came back to Nigeria I have continued practicing all these. Our roads are designed differently. To be frank badly. Having expressways in built up areas, people are tempted to run across it to get something from the other side quite frequently.

As a pedestrian, I find it quite difficult climbing footbridge that is nearly 3 stories high because I want to cross express way that is built right in residential area.
-
I only advice motorist to obey the rules. Do not drive continuously for long hours everyday. One day drive another day use public transport. The pedestrian is at your mercy. Driving is a great responsibility.
