Traffic in Nigeria

Hello everyone,

Which city or area do you live in in Nigeria, and how do you find the traffic?

How long does it take to commute to work or run errands?

Is there a rush hour in your city? What times of the day would you recommend people to avoid driving if they can?

Are there any ways to avoid spending too much time in traffic in Nigeria?

What is parking availability and cost like?

Thank you for sharing your experience.


I had lived in Lagos in 2013,14,15,16. For a 3rd world city ,Lagos has unbelievable number of vehicles. On top of that tankers go in & out of the ports,  Apapa & Tincan thru out night & day, leading to harrowing traffic jams, called ‘go slow’ in Nigeria. ‘Go slow’ is too benign to describe the traffic snarls of
Lagos. Traffic jams/go slows can take several hours on any given day specially if one were to cross port roads.
Peak hour go slows are bad even to an fro from the more upmarket Ikoyi & Victoria islands going to mainland Lagos. So carrying water & snacks for the journey are recommended.
Car pools are always advisable amongst friends & acquaintances. But are very uncommon because most people have drivers to drive their cars & there’s not feasible  to do away with that setup.

In the otherwise bustling megapolis, Lagos, there are many vibrant features but traffic is a sore thumb that really sticks out.
