Pegeout 504 with no power steering and no AC. Manual gear. The driver will concentrate more.
I'm sure this Honda driver was listening to music inside AC and pressing Whatsapp on his phone. He was totally distracted and didn't know when he hit something

How would you know all these to be true....and you started by saying you are sure...

Such a shame

I live in Lekki, many "fine" cars like this Honda. Every single day, many drivers are using at their phones right at the steering wheel, typing out whatapp, scrolling texts, with the eyes OFF from the road.
Because the car is air conditioned, with power options, automatic transmission and very comfortable inside. It's only statistics that a foolish accident will happen when people do this.
Overseas, it is an instant fine of £100 or more. But then again, they have CCTVs on the road to snap your picture as evidence. We can't do that in Nigeria because we just cannot get 24/7 electricity anywhere to power the CCTV.

I once tried unsuccessfully to put out the fire of a burning Audi. One very beautiful model like this shown in the picture below.
the car burnt totally to the ground. The driver was just crying. I asked what happened. He had mistakenly hit one useless kabu-Kabu (Opel or something) in front of him. Just a TINY BUMP. That was enough to set the engine on fire. And slowly the entire car went as well. This was in Ibeju area of Lekki.

You haven't answered my question, you are only speculating. Many people on this forum drive, some also stay at lekki, i asked a simple question, how are you sure that this particular accident was caused by loss of concentration arising from use of phone while driving? We all know it COULD happen, but i am asking you for proof that this is exactly what happened. And please don't tell me what happens abroad and the cost of tickets, like I said earlier, some people here stay abroad or travel frequently.

If you have no proof then do not tag me again. Thank you sir.

Buy and refill your fire extinguishers.

I have two huge fire extinguishers given to me from my office, one for the house and the other for the generator house. I want to dispose of them. Are you interested?
