Urbanization is a term used for capturing the process by which a rural settlement transforms into the urban way of life. It is associated with development and civilization. A multitude of push and pull factors is causing a rapid growth in Nigeria’s process of urbanization. Observations from urban centres in Nigeria have outlined various threats faced due to urbanizations such as the risk of environmental hazards, health hazards, and so on. The intense urbanization in Nigeria has further generated urban traffic crises among city dwellers. This traffic exist in different forms but majorly in the road transportation systems. The study analyzes and generate inferences on the stationary vehicular traffic count which was carried out at three areas in the third Africa largest city–Ibadan. Factors such as time point, routes and six (6) categories of vehicles plying the routes were taken into consideration to check whether or not there is a significant difference within each factors. Routes across the study locations with hectic traffic were discovered, such as Efunsetan to MRS and Ososami to Liberty at Challenge, Iwo Road to Abayomi at Gate, First Bank to Ogunpa at Dugbe. Sensitization of road users, strict law enforcement and construction of spaces for stationary vehicles were some of the recommendations made to reduce traffic.
