Abuja Driving Information
A decent road network around Abuja makes it relatively safe to drive around in. There is hardly any traffic congestion, unless you leave the city centre, where the roads narrow down. Within the city centre, there are typically 4-6 lane roads criss-crossing each other. There are street and traffic lights at most junctions, though, due to power failures, they tend to be off, and the junctions are manned by ‘yellow fever’ traffic police.
However it is recommended that short-term visitors not drive in Nigeria but rather hire a driver.
Driving between 1800 to 0600 should be done with extreme caution, as bandits and police roadblocks are more numerous at night. It is not uncommon for automobiles, trucks, or okadas to drive on the wrong side of the road or on sidewalks. These vehicles are difficult to see at night because streets are very poorly lit, and many vehicles are missing one or both headlights, tail lights, and reflectors.
It is important to be aware that drivers and passengers of vehicles involved in accidents resulting in injury or death have experienced extra-judicial actions (i.e., mob attacks, official consequences such as fines and incarceration, or involvement with the victim's family).
