So approaching Lagos from the east, at the police station roundabout, 99.999% of the traffic must be in the left lane to avoid a multa from the mini fascists.



That's true; the first turn is for the football ground and virtually no one turns there; but if you find yourself in the right lane and don't turn, the next one is the police station so expect to be waved in.

I suppose there will be long queues in the left lane and an empty right lane. And I guess this situation will be fairly common, there are surely many other roundabouts with a similar situation.

The opposite of what it is now (as captured by Google).
