This Forbes List says Lagos is 3rd Worst City to Drive in because of “Chronically cranky motorists” & 60% Congestion



*side eye* to Apapa tanker drivers and bus drivers…well done.

According to a list released by Forbes showing the top ten best and worst cities for drivers, Lagos State is the third worst city (globally!) for you to drive in because of 60% congestion and possibly chronically cranky motorists.

The list is based on an analysis of local congestion levels, average cost of parking and fuel, average roadway speeds, air pollution levels, number of traffic injuries, and road quality.

On the other spectrum, Dusseldorf in Germany is the best city in the world for drivers because of only 20% congestion and ever friendly people.

See the best and worst cities below.

    Do we really need the Forbes to tell us what we already know about our selves? That’s nothing new to me. Someone should tell Forbes to tell us something new. A word is enough for the wise. I’m just saying.

      Exactly what I was thinking but then again some parts of India are really bad. Lagos is truly the worst. You can’t predict what some drivers are gonna do. They can enter your front without signalling, they don’t maintain lanes, traffic driving is the worst.

    Lagos has been taking so much L´s lately :(.But If all this negative ratings could trigger the people in government to do something positive about it,then it will be great for everyone living in lagos..As for now lagos is nothing but a huge slum.
