the sanity of drivers

The next time you feel the need to write a honku, the following article may be enough to cool your engines.

In Nigeria they have a problem with drivers going the wrong way. It’s not just once in a while either – it’s a common occurrence!

And while you may declare in a fit of anger that the person who just cut you off needs to learn how to drive, in Nigeria, “most motorists have never had any formal training or passed a test.” In other words, they really do need to learn how to drive.

608 drivers were given a sanity test resulting in one driver who was declared insane and 20 others who “were found to have very low intelligent quota” indicating they were not fit to drive.

I used to see drivers on the road and shake my head, but after hearing about Nigerian drivers I should be grateful I don’t have to face oncoming traffic on a regular basis.

  1. Sounds like they’re clued in on proper driving practices just about as well as they’re clued in on proper email practices.

  2. Yeah, driving in the Dominican Republic was pretty crazy too, and I’ve heard most 3rd-2nd world countries are that way. It’s not for the faint of heart.

  3. Sanity tests for drivers licenses in America would be a fine idea!
