What do we often think of a traffic jam? A jumble of cars that get tangled on the road and can’t find a way out? That sounds like traffic congestion in Lagos. But, in fact, there’s another kind of traffic congestion that is organized. Yeah, traffic jams are organisable.
Look, this is the view from above of the Los Angeles freeway traffic jam and it was just staggering. Cars are following in line in an organized way. Though those vehicles couldn’t travel at high speed, we know, with the road users’ high awareness, they will escape the congestion soon.
