Ask anyone who drives in Accra how it feels and they would probably just shake their heads and reply, "it feels like a 1000 Ways To Die".

You might not immediately understand it, but driving in any of the big cities in Ghana, i.e Accra and Kumasi, will teach new life lessons that you make you wonder how you had ever survived without them.

1. You become an angry person by default

Look around the streets of Accra and tell me anyone who is driving and doesn't have an angry aura around them. The traffic, potholes and other factors will bring out the devil in you and other drivers and passengers alike will surely put you to test.

2. You learn new insults.

Even in languages that you can't speak. Imagine an Ewe person who can't speak Ga to save his life screaming out "Onya ye sormi". With phrases like “Gyimi”, or “kwasia”, you’re a certified driver in a big city.

Have you ever been behind a car and noticed that he/she is moving slowly due to your incessant horning? Or noticed that the other driver at the other lane will not let you in because you probably didn’t let him in before?

4. It will give you a crash course in patience

Sometimes, after all, your anger (that cannot boil beans) and your pettiness (which no reach anywhere), you may have to calm down and be patient.
