He Wasn't Informed: White Man Shocked as Cars Refuse to Stop for Him at a Zebra Crossing in Lagos, Shares Clip

  • An Oyinbo man experienced a culture shock on a Lagos road that wouldn't come as a surprise to Nigerians
  • The foreigner stood at a zebra crossing waiting to get to the other side of the road but was stunned that no driver stopped for him
  • The stunned Oyinbo marvelled that the drivers weren't smiling and added, 'this shi*t doesn’t work here'

Basically, a zebra crossing is an area of road painted with broad white stripes, where vehicles must stop if pedestrians wish to cross.

In Nigeria, especially on busy Lagos roads, that is not usually the case, as a white man would find out firsthand.
