Nowadays city roads are occupied by cars and for this reason traffic congestion is very common matter in city life. Sometimes we have to wait hours and hours on the roads due to its plenty uses. Cars are also harmful for the environment because it produce the polluted air. Parking is one of the major problem in city for using cars, it takes lot of spaces to park and it creates some problem when car owners take their car in shopping mall and supermarkets which has no parking facilities. It is not affordable for every people to buy car and not easy to maintain whose has no disposal income. However cars are able to cover great distances which bring more people into city centers and boost the local money.
First of all, it is obviously seen that the quantity of private vehicles is gradually increasing in direct proportion with population of major cities. Government should pass laws to restrict access of large and long means of transportation such as trucks, vans, cars, etc. to city center at rush hours. On the other hand, government should give supports to public transportation system so that it becomes cheap and convenient for people to commute every day. For instance, bus system should be financially assisted to be renovated to be in good condition and offer good services with reasonable fare.
Secondly, it is undeniable that traffic congestion is worsened due to low awareness of travellers. For examples, we can easily catch images of bikers who drive on pedestrian areas and cars’ lane or who pass the crossroad at red traffic light, which disorders traffic system. The government therefore should implement more effective educational measures, . including traffic laws in curriculum, fostering TV shows, organizing campaigns, etc. to raise people’s awareness. Furthermore, the government should consider imposing stricter punishments on traffic law violation.
In an attempt to improve highway safety, Prunty County last year lowered its speed limit from 55 to 45 miles per hour on all county highways. But this effort has failed: the number of accidents has not decreased, and, based on reports by the highway patrol, many drivers are exceeding the speed limit. Prunty County should instead undertake the same kind of road improvement project that Butler County completed five years ago: increasing lane widths, resurfacing rough highways, and improving visibility at dangerous intersections. Today, major Butler County roads still have a 55 mph speed limit, yet there were 25 percent fewer reported accidents in Butler County this past year than there were five years ago.
