“Being stuck in traffic jams for much of the journey makes us think of possible developments of the city.”
Some people say that the volume of traffic is increasing and the city government should pay more attention to the improvement of the public transport. Others are sure that people cannot change their habits and will never stop using their cars.
A lot of cities try to discourage the use of private cars in the center. I believe that increasing charges for parking and introducing tougher fines for people who break the law can change the situation for the better. The city government should provide more cheap parking on the outskirts of the city and develop the public transport. Moreover, the rail services and the facilities for cyclists should be improved. There are not enough roads to meet the demands.
Many other people think that people get used to the comfort of their own cars, they say that underground trains run too slowly and there are crowds of people any time of the day. They claim that buses do not come on time and the intervals are long. Therefore, they prefer cars to public transport.
To my mind, cars have become a threat to a healthy life of people in cities, they pollute the air and make our life full of danger.
Summing up, I should say everything seems polluted and risky nowadays. So , the city governments have to make reasonable plans how to solve the problem of traffic jams in our cities.
