No African city made the list of most desirable cities for driving. Lagos was the only African city in the top ten of least desirable cities for driving.

"Poor urban planning or a lack of civil education can make driving the most stressful experience of somebody’s day," says  Thomas Kloubert, who is the CMO of kfzteile24.

"Driving in Lagos is so exhausting. I want a driver for Christmas" tweeted Tunji on Twitter. And this is due to poor urban planning.

All these build up to crazy road rage on our roads. "Is it possible to drive in this Lagos without having road rage??"  No. Lagos is notorious for traffic and Mad-Max drivers. Let's not forget to add the okadas and Keke NAPEP drivers.

There has been a recent drive by the Lagos state government to take okadas off the streets and make the streets safer. One of the initiatives is to get the blue line of the light rail project. The project was scheduled to be ready by December 2016. There is new no date for the project.

Till the rail project is ready, we have to continue screaming like madmen while driving.
