Before you cross the road, please look left, then right, then, importantly, left again.
If it is a small village dirt road, please look left, then right, then, importantly, left again.
If it is a small township tarred road, please look left, then right, then, importantly, left again.
If it is a dual carriage highway with all vehicles supposed to be going in the approved direction on each half, please look right, then left, then, importantly, right again.
When on a dual carriageway in Lekki, you look right and then left, and then start to cross, you reckon without that rusted-ogogoro-filled okada rider or the other cheap-hemp-saturated danfo driver who has decided that driving "one-way" is no big deal.
You may think that you know your rights and that heaven will fall if you get knocked down by an errant driver. Well, maybe you know your rights. But if you get knocked down, heaven will not fall down. If you get killed, heaven will just go from being your dream to being your (possible) destination.
When all is said and done, when the driver has hit his victim and run, it is those who are left that get to determine who was right.
On a small road, look left, then right, then left again. On a large road, look right, then left, then right again.
If there is a pedestrian bridge and you are a pedestrian, please use your bridge. The Nigerian road is a sea full of alligators called vehicles.
