Even Business insider had this to say about it



Lagos (AFP) - Nigeria's chaotic megacity Lagos on Wednesday sought to impose a one-day ban on the use of the car horn, hoping to raise awareness about damaging noise pollution and improve quality of life.
The occasional honk still rang out on the crowded streets of the country's financial capital yet drivers, public transport users and pedestrians said they noticed that things were a bit quieter.
Many welcomed the idea but wondered whether old habits would die hard come Thursday.
"If the intention is to reduce the noise, it's good," said Lateef Adebayo, a 35-year-old commercial driver. "But after today, I don't see people complying with the policy."
Traffic police have been advertising "horn-free day" on their high-visibility vests and have been told they can enforce existing legislation against unnecessary horn use.
