How Nigeria Solved the Google Map Controversy

Google Maps has become a popular feature for most drivers in Nigeria because it helps them to find locations across major streets in the country. With Google maps, people will no longer get lost.

But authorities in Nigeria such as the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) have outlawed the use of google map while driving. It was observed that the use of the maps while driving can cause distractions that may result in accidents.

So, while google maps solve the problem of location for drivers, it causes another problem of distraction because drivers use it while driving.

Any driver found using the google map while driving on Nigerian roads will be arrested according to a new directive from the FRSC.

 In many parts of the world, Google maps are used without any restrictions but the rate of road accidents in Nigeria may have necessitated the need to limit the use of google maps.
