    Hahahaha! I love this. Was thinking of making my own list cos I just moved back home. Driving here is extremely different. I can relate to everything here except for hitting someone. I always pray I don’t hit anyone and thank God so far so good. Lol and you have to learn how to chook nose in front of other cars if you want to change lanes when there’s traffic or else you’ll just sleep there.
    Also the spacing between cars! Don’t even get me started on that one! Too small. I’m always scared I’ll scratch someone so I’m scared to move sometimes in traffic or even change lanes. I guess I’ll get used to it. Ko easy rara but Oluwa is involved.
    Another one to add is that especially on small roads, the last lane isn’t for you. It’s for the kekes

      @Ajala & Foodie (Nne, how far?) and @wsb, but that rule no be only for Naija use oh. Even here in the U.K. I often find myself repeating it out loud on the road.

      Na the people wey dey drive straight through a pedestrian crossing, when the traffic light for vehicles has turned red? Or the ones on the outside lane at a roundabout who fully intend to drive all the way “around the roundabout” and get off at its 3rd or 4th exit??

      What my eyes have seen and OlowoGboboro has helped my car from either hitting or being hit by ??

    #2, was one my dad hammered into our heads even before we started driving. ” Drive like everyone else on the road is mad” is my dad’s driving mantra for driving in Nigeria.

      My dad too! He always says assume you are the only sane person on the roads. Works for me

      Lol… A church member of ours is a FRSC top official and he decided to give a few safety pointers during a church service. His first point was “assume every motorist is mad. Never expect any sanity or common sense from anybody..”

    I can relate.. totally! Delta geh, true talk re spacing. I’m terrified of driving in Lagos and when I do, I turn into a beast. I scarcely recognize me. I once parked on the left lane of one small street, turned off my engine and sat in my 2017 Mercedes aka 2003 Camry (don’t hate pls!). Why? In my small ” you can’t drag the road with me mind,” the motorist on the right lane was trying to run me off the street. I mean, they had enough space to maneuver without me hugging what was left of the road. Did they? Honestly, now I don’t know. I just sat there with windows all rolled up until the other motorist broke the impasse. Do I recommend such behavior? No! I’m very ashamed of myself!
