You’re Allowed to Fight People Who Do These 5 Things in Traffic

August 16, 2022

Let me paint a picture; It’s night, and there’s crazy traffic because of road construction. You’ve been driving from Ogbomoso for the last five hours and you’re tired as fuck. You enter a new lane, and immediately traffic moves just a few meters, the person behind you begins to flash their lights and honk like a possessed person. It’s not once or twice. It’s every single time the traffic moves. And it’s not because you’re not moving on time; they’re just trying to alert you that traffic is moving. 

You eventually move to a new lane and meet another person doing the same thing, but even worse. You’re in your car screaming, looking back, wondering if you can just get out of your car and go and tell them their lights are blinding you and giving you a headache. They flash again. You want to fight but remember you’re a small-statured person who will be beaten by just about anyone. You stay in your car and scream internally. 

You eventually leave the lane for the last 30 minutes of the traffic, but when you get to Lagos, you meet more traffic. Guess who’s behind you? Mr. Aggressive Flasher. 

Guys, don’t be like me. Get down and fight. In fact, get out of your car and fight anyone who does any of these X things. 

Flashing

Before this becomes an endless, annoying trend that drives us all mad, please let’s kill it with violence. It was me a few days ago; it could be you tomorrow. 

Honking for no reason

Why don’t people understand that noise is bad? Why are people blasting their horns just because they want to? For this, there is only one answer: violence. Break their windshield. Cut their brakes. Bash them from the back. Bring out koboko and flog them. Do something. 

Littering 

I don’t need to say too much about this one. There’s absolutely no reason why anyone should finish eating in a car and decide that the road is the best place to dump their refuse. Nope. 

Starers

Obviously, they’re looking at you because they want to fight. What could be a different reason?

Danfo drivers simply need to be fought

You don’t need to catch them doing something bad to know they’re doing bad things. Every time you have the opportunity, please fight a danfo driver. Do it for the rest of us.
