If you haven’t heard, Gh traffic is not something to mess around with. I know this from previous experiences in taxis and heard from others but since I started work I had never experienced any mayor traffic problems apart from a certain part further down into my journey so once I changed my route I have been avoiding that so was much happier with it.
Only to come to one day on my way to work when I was faced with serious traffic. I was hit with bumper to bumper traffic at every point of my journey, It was honestly hell. Traffic and Heat = A bad combination, thank The Lord for air conditioning otherwise my make up would have melted like a candle and I probably would have fainted due to the intense heat! Not only that Ghanaian taxis and tro- tro drivers are lawless drivers with NO patience, they think they own the road and can do what ever they like which makes the experience even more annoying!
My 45mins to one hour journey turned into 2.5hours! When I finally got to work with the others that experienced a similar problem, I made it clear that if I had to battle THAT every morning I would give up working as it honestly wouldn’t be worth my time.
