Forbes names Lagos third worst city to drive in globally



Lagos State has been named the third worst city for drivers in the world, with 60 per cent congestion and 10.70mph average speed.

Lagos was ranked third next to Karachi, Pakistan: 59 per cent congestion, 11.20mph average speed and Kolkata, with India topping the list.

According to Forbe’s list, Dusseldorf, Germany came first as the best city for drivers, with 20 per cent congestion, and 21.20mph average speed.
