LAGOS TRAFFIC

The traffic in Lagos is probably the worst thing about living in this city.........after power failure.

I am ranting right now, so bear with me.

I went for a dear friend and big sister's birthday party today and I spent over 4hours on the road going and coming and the most annoying thing was that the roads were not so bad, yes, there were some pot holes but that was not the cause but those stupid contraptions called DANFOS

It is about time those things are banned from Lagos roads and the drivers and conductors chased from Lagos as well. They stop everywhere to pick up and drop passengers, they face oncoming traffic and cause terrible hold ups,the Police, LASTMA etc have lost control and anarchy reigns.

The government should phase out these buses and gradually replace them with the BRT buses by not registering any more Danfos because I truly believe that no amount of training and cautioning can change these drivers.

Anyway, I am just ranting and don't really expect a change and I can only live in Lagos or leave it and since I have no intention of leaving, I have to live with it........lol

ps: I only spent 1hour at the party.
