Lagos Traffic is heavy on Twitter, and we’re here for it. Check out what people are saying:
Notorious traffic roads like Apapa, 3rd mainland bridge, and Ikorodu Road were among those most commonly referenced in the tweets.
With over 20 million people and 12 million vehicles, traffic jam has become just as synonymous with Lagos as anything else. A lot of has changed in the city in the last few years, but one thing that has remained constant is the gridlock along most roads.
Some of the tweets with the hashtag #Mylagostrafficstory were also centered around the difficulty most working class Lagosians face when commuting to and from work. One Peculiar tweet caught our attention.
This user spends over 8 hours on the road each day asides the usual working hours. We can only imagine how much this routine has affected her lifestyle. Oh yea, we don’t have to imagine, because sadly we know the struggle.
For all the jokes and memes made about Lagos traffic yesterday evening (and there were a lot), it is clear that there is a real epidemic of traffic jam in Lagos. For now though, let us deal with it the Nigerian way, and have a good laugh about it. After all, what’s life without a little bit of humor?
