Crossing the road
With a child strapped to her back and holding a 3-year-old son, a Nigerian lady will attempt to cross a very busy highway while dodging oncoming vehicles, all at the same time. Even though there is a pedestrian bridge in front of her. This is a common scenario on Lagos roads.
Many people know that crossing a busy road is risky but they do it anyway. It is logical and safe to use the pedestrian bridge, but they would rather choose the shorter route. So if you are driving through a street or major road around a city, it helps to keep a foot close to the break-pad and an eye on the lookout for ‘shunters’.
