Traffic is one of the most common issues in the big cities around the world. Traffic may cause chemical pollution and also sound pollution. Moreover, the rising levels of congestion and air pollution found in most of the world cities can be attributed directly to the rapidly increasing number of private cars in use. In order to reverse this decline in the quality of life in cities, attempts must be made to encourage people to use their cars less and public transport more.
Due to the increase of automotive technology, there is a rapid development of vehicle’s quantity that is a major cause leading to traffic congestions. Furthermore, it is said that the high volume of vehicles, the inadequate infrastructure and the irrational distribution of the development are main reasons for increasing traffic jam. Firstly, the inadequate infrastructure cannot handle the issue of traffic is also a crucial reason. The public transport such as bus, subway or train is not available and its quality is very bad, especially in the developing countries. Within some countries had railway system, it need to be developed to spread out the outskirt. For example, people living far away to the main suburb have driven their car every single day to the city, because of no supports public transport at the living area. What if all the people in this area use their vehicle, it will take a lot of parking space and fuel used as well. Besides, the highway and road network is incapable of meeting the requirement of increasing number of vehicle. With the extremely number vehicle moving all days, it can’t avoid be damaged such as accidents. Therefore, it might need more maintaining services. Apparently, the irrational distribution and the lack of conscience make the traffic worse and worse. Most of head offices, the universities or hospitals often locate in the centre of city attracting a heavy flow of people in rush hour. At this time, we can see an atmosphere that including noise, air pollution or traffic jams. All of the effects will reduce living-standard of the resident about health, education and wasting time.
Not only traffic jams impact on human, it’s also about environment. The more transportations increase, the more pollution effects to. As you know, the fresh air level in the city is lower than standard which includes noise and fume release. The most “headache” time usually is rush hour when people come back home from city. The noises come from vehicle and engine, and also fume will take part in the atmosphere and become a main cause of health. In some Asian countries, people have to wear mask because of pollution too high. It effects in their eye, skin or breathe system. Transport is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions thus impacting climate change. The movement of people and goods accounts for almost 14% the state’s total CO2 emissions. Whilst the major sources of greenhouse gasses are power generation and land uses, transport is the fastest growing.
Vehicle brings out many disadvantages to human. People should find the better way to tackle those issues to make their life better. Because of the private transportations increasing, the government should encourage people to use public transport or vehicles with small size such as bicycles or make tax on private vehicles. However, in my particular view, the public tickets are still high and the quality of services is at average such as train delay, no bus at some suburb. That’s why the vehicle purchasing will go up day by day in other words people prefer private vehicle, because of its cheaper and more convenience. Particularly, in some Asia countries such as Viet Nam, the local authorities passed law restricting to the number of vehicles for each family. Under-controlled transport will lead to many issues about urbanization. Public transports should reduce the price for encouraging people using it. The government in developing countries should make an investment in the traffic facilities, namely, the public transport need improving to become more modern and convenience. In my opinion, each person has to do something to change that happens. It will be really hard but I think they will improve their life and defend them from personal or society problems. For example, people who cycling or walking everyday will get fit easy than people who used their car all the time. It also help our environment decrease pollution in society way. Nowadays, vehicle tax or maintaining it not low and it may create unexpected budget problem to some family who can support it. Transportation is increasing rapidly year time; infrastructures need to be repair to keep it in safe. That’s why people have to pay high tax fee. These day, fuel and oil price are increasing gradually. People also need to spend lots of money in this and it can’t protect atmosphere from pollution. That’s mean people pay money to destroy habitat and their health.
Public transports still have some problems but I think it’s the best way to solve those problems. Quite cheaper, eco-friendly, less fume emission is the target that authority aims to. It also has fewer accidents compared with private vehicle.
I’m not trying to stop people using their private car but they should reduce time spending it because of their health and our environment. I just give some my opinion to change something which is effecting to people. People should use public transport and being health that will help all of us and the earth in the general way.
