    One of the biggest issues in an urban area is traffic congestion. One of the primary reasons for traffic congestion is poor planning. To circumvent this an appropriate planning is necessary.

    Poor planning results in terrible traffic congestions. One of the key areas is near the junctions. During the initial phase, a junction traffic control might start with a simple signal, and when the traffic jams increase, more and more complex traffic control systems should be involved. One another area we often see congestion is when there is maintenance on the road, as there are no alternate routes to manage traffic. Other causes of traffic congestions are people not obeying the law. Another reason for traffic congestion is a huge number of people using private vehicles instead of public transportations like buses, which can carry a large number of persons.

    There should be good coordination between national planning, county planning, and city planning to have their growth predictions aligned in order to have proper planning of the road, they could come up with road sizes in order to meet the type of vehicles that might pass by. There should be coordination between different departments for the maintenance to avoid congestions during maintenance and when designing routes, there should always be alternate routes to bypass congestion due to maintenance or other mishaps. People should develop a sense of responsibility and adhere to traffic rules. Law enforcement can also use surveillance techniques as deterrent so that people will obey the laws. We should also reduce the gaps in public transportations, as this encourages people to use public transportation to a greater extend. There is also a mentality change that is needed for people to use public transportation more and more.

    In conclusion, proper planning will help in mitigating traffic jams to a certain extend.

    In this time and age , traffic congestion is one of the pressing issue of concern confronted by this globalized world. This essay shall delve into prime factors behind it and provide effective and efficient ways to curb it.




    Myriads of reasons can be considered while addreving this issue. but the most conspicuous one is people not following proper traffic rules while driving and parking vehicles. it is due to the fact that some civilians are very careless towards there duties. as a result it causes traffic problems. for example people park there cars in no parking zones for saving their time which creates lot of difficulties to another person.Another subtle reason behind this is due to lack of public transport. this is because people feel it in convenient while using. consequently it creates traffic problems.




    However , on the other hand , every lock has a key. similarly , there are couple of solutions to curb this problem. First of all , there should be some strict rules and regulations for civilians related to traffic rules moreover an high amount of fine should be charged from the person repeating any offence. Public transport should also be improved according to people convenience and government should also motivate people for using more public transport. Pooling cabs can also help for reducing traffic on city roads.




    No doubt traffic congestion is not easy to tackle, however above mentioned solutions must be implemented on war footing to overcome this problem as soon as possible.

    Traffic congestion is one of the pressing issues in many urban cities around the world. Since everyone uses the transport system in everyday life to reach the destination on time, it is essential to manage the traffic. In this essay, we will go through the various reasons for the traffic congestion and possible solutions to eradicate the problem.

    To begin, various reasons might cause the traffic congestion, and the situation is not limited to slower speeds, increase vehicle queues, and longer trip times. Undoubtedly, one of the primary reasons is that people do not follow the traffic rules and regulations. As everyone tries to reach their destination without stopping at the stop signs and red signals which would result in traffic congestion and would not let any vehicle move towards any direction. Additionally, when traffic signals are not working and lack of appropriate signs especially at schooling and housing areas will also develop a similar situation. For example, there was a situation in Singapore in 2008, where a traffic signal was not working, and everyone was moving in their direction which resulted in the traffic jam and took more than 6 hours to clear it which also led 2 people to die as they were trying to commute to hospital in an emergency condition.

    However, there are solutions to eradicate this situation such as by enforcing strict rules and regulations by government bodies along with the periodic examination of the transport system of the city. People tend to be lenient when there are no consequences, by incurring tickets and fines whenever they do not follow the regulations. For example, the person will be cautious to repeat a second time whenever a person crosses the red signal or didn’t stop at the red sign. In addition, the government needs to set up a department that is focused to examine the traffic systems to ensure all the traffic signals and systems are working appropriately. In Japan, they have improved their entire traffic system and have noticed the reduction of traffic congestion from 48% to 5% in five years.

    To conclude, by enforcing proper regulations and strategies by government to the traffic system we can eliminate all the struggles that an individual in facing on roads.

    In metropolitan cities, one of the biggest issues is traffic jam.The main reason for this is increasing number of motor vehicles , while public transition is in the worst condition and reliable solution is add tax .

    Analysing the statement, it is clearly seen , as population grows , the number of cars is growing as well, travelling by a car is more flexible and convenient to people’s lifestyle, weekly household shopping, for instance .it would be more convenient to use your own car instead of a public transportation which might be overcrowded and not available for the entire day . Furthermore, another obstacle is there is no restrictions around auto purchases.Everyone can buy a car as long as he has revenue for it. For example , if a big city has about million people and each of them own the car , so there would be a million automobiles on the roads which cause traffic jam .

    The possible solution for this may be the promotion of car sharing schemes which will cost effective and it will motivate people to use fewer cars. Also ,by improving public transportation ,for instance, reduce fare and more frequency of buses and trains will encourage people use it more . Furthermore , adding more cycle lanes will also inspire people to use bicycles instead of cars . And what might help it is adding tax for vehicle , it would lead to reconsider if they really need an auto.

    In conclusion, the increasing amount of ownership vehicles and awful public transportation is always responsible for the huge traffic jams in big cities .However ,by improving public transportation by the governments will provide solution to reduce congestions .

      while public transition is in the worst condition( and the worst condition/unavailability of public transportation) , and reliable solution is add tax . (to tackle this problem , government can levy high road tax)

      Analysing the statement, it is clearly seen- better version of words could have chosen

      Topic sentence needs to be loud and clear

      .Everyone can buy a car as long as he has (can afford) revenue for it.

      each of them own (owns)

      I could see the solution mentioned in introduction is not the one that is prominent in body paragraph 2, and solution given in the conclusion is also something different from the one mentioned in introduction.

    A major problem faced by metropolitan cities around the world is the traffic congestion encountered by them ,on a daily basis. This can be accounted to an exponential rise in population, which in turn leads to more people opting for private vehicles and lack of proper city planning. Some solutions to curb this problem are by encouraging the use of public transport and better government initiatives.


    In the last decade, we have seen an enormous rise in population numbers. More people has meant that there are more vehicle buyers, which has been a major reason for the problem of traffic congestion ,in cities around the world. Due to this reason, most countries in the world are struggling to offer better road infrastructure, as there is an ever-growing need, which is often difficult to fulfil. Moreover, Lack of city planning in most developed and developing economies has worsened this issue.

    Betterment of public transport and establishment of government initiatives are pivotal in solving this problem. Ensuring public transport is affordable and connected has already shown phenomenal results in cities like London and Sydney, where traffic numbers has halved in the last 5 years. Government’s need to take stringent measures and initiatives ,like creating traffic free zones and only walking / areas ,around high streets. We have recently seen cities like Delhi and Beijing taking up the odd-even initiative, whereby only certain vehicles are allowed on the road, on a particular day.


    To conclude, It is imperative to control the problem of traffic jams with innovative and stricter measures, keeping in mind the manifold issues it might cause to our future generations.

Traffic congestion is one of the alarming issues in urban cities around the world. This essay will first describe the biggest causes of traffic jams which includes the lack of infrastructure and more private vehicles owned by citizens, then provide significant solutions like well structured roads and use of public transport.

    The foremost reason for traffic clogging is because of the absence of well organized roads and more automobiles owned by people these days. Increasing unavailability of properly managed roads results in big traffic jams which sometimes lasts for days. Furthermore, in addition to that there is more conveyance on the highways these days because today almost everyone in the city has their own cars. For instance, the world’s biggest traffic congestion happened in China in 1992 which lasted for more than two weeks, just because of the non-existence of systematic roads and increasing population.

    On the other hand, possible solutions of these causes would be to construct the roads in planned manner and more usage of public transport. While the materials used in constructing roads and the availability of resources are much higher today, still there is always a room for improvement which is to do proper planning in this case. Along with this, it is necessary to encourage people to use more and more public transportation. For example, China was more prone to traffic congestion in the 20th century but they easily cope with that today with proper planning.

    Traffic Jam is one of the most profound issues faced by every metropolitan city. Traffic jams mostly occur during major roads or right near big malls, theatres, bus stands and railway stations. It is crowded by vehicles on major roads that many people use to travel to work or school.

    Now what is the main reason behind a traffic jam? Though we are living in a major city where all facilities are provided, still the roads are very much broken and damaged. Most of the roads connecting to major places are destroyed by weather or by car accidents. The solution for reducing traffic jam is taking Public Transportation. Usage of Public transportation is efficient, reliable and at times faster than personal vehicles. It is economical and provides discounts for senior citizens and students. People can save a lot by eliminating the need to pay for parking, car insurance and not to mention gasoline.

    The other cause for hold-up of vehicles is people’s hesitation to use Buses and Trains. For example , I noticed the other day that most of the people who used big cars such as Sumo, Nexon and i20 had only only person travelling in it. For an Individual person, taking a bus would be much more appropriate. On the other hand every car only had a single person taking it. This seems to be waste of energy, money and this mindset leads to traffic jam. The government should encourage people to take public transportation. The government should provide necessary amenities in buses and trains . Furthermore it should increase the number and frequency of the rides so as to make it less crowded and more comfortable.

    To summarize, the main causes for traffic jams are roads in bad condition and people’s hesitation towards Public transportation. Therefore if everyone starts to take Public transport, the traffic will reduce to a great extent.

    Now a days, one of the most debated topics in the world, that is people face in there day to day life in cities is traffic congestion. Rise in traffic is at alarming rate in metropolitan cities. This is due to poor management of traffic signals, and no proper infrastructure, which leads to traffic blockage. And we will discuss few solutions how authorities should manage traffic signals.

    Firstly, people who have busy schedules tend to bypass signals and create inconvenience to incoming traffic which results in clogging of traffic. Especially, young peers we can see them riding motor bikes with out proper knowledge of traffic rules. Furthermore, improper functioning of traffic signals and absence of traffic police. For instance, an article published in a popular newspaper they quoted malfunctioning of traffic lights was primary reason.

    Proper education should be provided to citizens before hitting the roads. On the other hand, authorities should have continuous monitoring of traffic signals and imposing fines to those who neglect traffic rules. For example, in united states of America, there government implement heavy fines and even bookcases on citizens who disobey rules. In developed countries, we can see artificial intelligent cameras which can send photos, where you crossed signal, they even use these cameras to catch criminals. Even I observed some of these technologies implemented in our states.

    To conclude, government should take stringent actions against people who go against law, and provide good infrastructure.

    Traffic congestion has become an alarming issue in the metropolitan cities. This essay first describes the main causes of traffic congestion like increasing use of private vehicles as well as poor infrastructure and then provides the vital solutions to overcome the problems like building better roadways, flyovers and also encourage citizens to use public transport.

    As population is increasing day by day, so more demand for automobiles and more private vehicles on roads. People prefer to use their own vehicles to travel around the cities instead of using public transportation because public transport is overcrowded and not well maintained. For instance, in bus depot of Azadpur an urban area in Delhi where there is no proper timing of buses and bus services are also less, so citizens have to wait for hours to reach at their destination. Secondly, there is no well organised roads and roads are often in bad condition. For example, karala, a place in Delhi,where one can find potholes on the road surface. Due to which traffic jam lasts for 4-5 hours. During monsoon season, the situation becomes worsening. Poor infrastructure is the foremost cause for traffic clogging not only in Delhi but in all metropolitan cities.

    On the other hand, proper solutions for these causes would be to construct better roads, flyovers and highways in a well planned manner to avoid traffic jam. During construction process, best quality material should be used so that infrastructure will last long. Secondly, government should encourage citizens to use public transport and also conduct awareness campaigns to make public responsible towards public transport. The government should provide necessary amenities as well as bus services should be more so that people don’t have to wait for longer. For example, Delhi government has started a scheme in which travelling is free for women in buses. The scheme has increased the use of public transport. Such types of schemes should be started by the government so that people will start using public transport instead of private vehicles.

    To conclude, government as well as citizens should be more responsible. Government should be the main facilitator in providing amenities. Government should take proper measures to encourage citizens to use public transport and in avoiding traffic congestion.

    Since the beginning of 20th century traffic congestion is a major problem faced by all the metropolitan cities due to the increase in the number of private vehicle and insufficient usage of public transport. The traffic congestion can be tackled by taking various kind of actions like motivating people to use public transportation, making changes in the traffic law and implementing new way of transportation would solve the problem.

    To begin with, starting of modern world had lead to unique kind of innovations and automobile sector is one of them. Now in this era owning a private vehicle is considered as standard of living in the society due to that we are witnessing more number of vehicle on the roads. For instance Delhi transportation authorities came with a different idea of odd vehicle system, it will allow citizens to drive their vehicle in the city on fixed days and there will be a rotation in running vehicle on the road. It actually reduced 30% of the traffic.

    In addition, due to the increase of private vehicle services people are travelling less in public transport and this can be solved giving better services to passengers, building flyover to reduce the time of travel. For instance, in the city of Bengaluru they came with a suitable idea of separate lane for public transport buses and in that method no other vehicle are allowed to drive on the lane. It decreased time of travelling as it encouraged people to travel in public transportation and it decreased 25% traffic of the city by following such unique solution.

    To conclude, the government and it’s citizens should act responsible by implementing new rules, encouraging to travel in public transportation and providing economic services as well as the citizens should follow traffic rules by this way traffic congestion can be solved.

    Increasing traffic congestion is a problem faced by all the metro cities. There are several reasons for it. For instance, Increasing number of vehicles , the roads infrastructure, etc.

    According to a recent survey by popular magazine it has found that in today’s era each house has more than one vehicle in their family. With this statement, we can assume the number of private transports are more. Now if everyone in the family uses their private transport to commute as a result it enlarges the road jam. To avoid it people should use one of the two options either they start using public transport or carpool. Both options are pocket-friendly, and the person will be avoiding the hassle of driving on the road. Moreover, it is safe for the public. Example, carpools have Mobile app to book the ride and share location with their dear one. This functionality makes sure their loved one is safe and reached to their destination on time

    Furthermore, many MNC came up with an idea to allow their employees to work from home twice or thrice a week to avoid the bottleneck traffic issue. It avoids the rushing office hours issue as well.

    Another suggestion is to reduce the gridlock, the city should have a better road structure like flyovers, more than one route to reach the destination. If over bridge available, then there will be fewer roadblocks as it helps to avoid the area which is not common to cover. More bicycles path can help to less logjam although it is reduces the air pollution as well. In a few cities, government bus has different lane on road and no other vehicle are allowed on that lane which is helpful for transit. Decided lanes can also be helpful for the existing situation of roads

    In conclusion, to minimize traffic jams public and government needs to work together. More options for the public via new structure and usage of other transportation. Changing the reporting time and shift working hours is also another option to minimize the blockage on road.

    Traffic congestion is one of the major problems people face in everyday life in major cities.

    This essay will first discuss about the root causes of traffic congestion like, improper planning while establishing the cities/capitals and inefficient use of public transport and then argue that solutions are construction of better high ways, metros which covers entire city and implementing the different methods of effective use of public transport.

    The major causes of traffic blocking are that not planning well before constructing/establishing the cities and ineffective use of public transport.

    Firstly, Administrative bodies responsible for designing the cities, are not planning the cities well before and lacking the knowledge of estimating the developments of cities in future. Hence, soon after the cities are established, they are suffering from the congestion issues. For instance, Bangalore city is not planned well before establishing, like in the initial day’s there were no metro trains, no proper flyovers to deviate the city traffic in 4-way intersection areas, no bridges/flyovers to deviate the highway traffic from inter city traffic.

    Secondly, People are using their individual vehicles to commute instead of using public transport. If every individual uses his/her own vehicle, it occupies lot of space in roads, leading to road blockage. For example, in New York city most of the individuals are commuting to their offices using their own vehicles leading to hours of traffic jams.

    Possible solutions to these problems would be to plan well before establishing the cities and people should start using public transport, bicycles, carpooling methods whenever possible.

    If the administrative bodies plan well before designing cities and construct/provide metro trains which can connect all ends of the city and also constructing the proper highways wherever possible it would definitely solve the traffic congestion issues.

    Furthermore, People should start using the public transport wherever possible. Carpooling is another method through which multiple people can share the same vehicle to reach their respective destinations to avoid traffic congestions. People who commute to smaller distance can opt for bicycles to avoid traffic congestions and as well as pollution.

    Chandigarh is one of the well planned city in India , which has proper metro connectivity throughout the city, it has best highways to avoid the intersection traffic jams. And also, public transport is well maintained by government which covers most of the areas within the city.

    To conclude, Major cities are suffering from traffic congestion issues caused by improper planning of cities while establishing and not utilizing the public transport effectively, but possible solutions could be to plan the cities well before and people should opt for public transport or carpooling methods.

      Traffic congestion is one of the major problems people face in everyday life in major cities. This essay will first discuss about the root causes of traffic congestion like, improper planning while establishing the cities/capitals and inefficient use of public transport and then discuss the solutions are construction of better high ways, metros which covers entire city and implementing the different methods of effective use of public transport.

      There are two major root causes for congestion. Firstly, Administrative bodies responsible for designing the cities, are not planning the cities well before and lacking the knowledge of estimating the developments of cities in future. Hence, soon after the cities are established, they are suffering from the congestion issues. For instance, Bangalore city is not planned well before establishing, as there were no metro trains, no bridges to deviate the city traffic in 4-way intersection areas, and no flyovers to deviate the highway traffic from inter city traffic. Secondly, People are using their individual vehicles to commute instead of using public transport. It occupies enormous space in roads, leading to road blockage. For example, in New York city most of the individuals are commuting to their offices using their own vehicles leading to hours of traffic jams.

      The administrative bodies should plan well before designing cities and construct metro trains which can connect all ends of the city and also construct highways. Furthermore, People should start using the public transport or carpooling wherever possible. For instance, Chandigarh is one of the well-planned cities in India, which has proper metro connectivity throughout the city along with best highways to avoid the intersection traffic jams. And also, public transport is well maintained by government which covers most of the areas within the city.

      To conclude, Major cities are suffering from traffic congestion issues caused by improper planning of cities while establishing and not utilizing the public transport effectively, but possible solutions could be to plan the cities well before and people should opt for public transport or carpooling methods.

    Traffic is a everyday visual witnessed by people living in almost all cities. traffic jam is very familiar problem confronted by millions of people while travelling. personal vehicles and road traffic management are major contributors to everyday traffic difficulties. this essay will discuss the causes and will provide a logical solution.

    There are many factors influencing traffic congestion. however, personal vehicles and road transport management play pivotal role in influencing traffic jam. mode of transport preferred by people changes with their financial level and need of the hour. generally most people depend on personal vehicles like own cars and bikes. Therefore, it adds more vehicles on road leading to traffic congestion. In comparision, i believe if people relied more on public transport and resorted to car pooling, traffic hurdles will subside in very less time.

    Traffic management by government authorities have different approach in each state of the same country. In most cases traffic jam occurred due to terrible management of traffic by state government authorities. In addition, unsual road constructions and lack of strict rules and regulation provide to traffic congestion. Personally i witnesses bangalore and kolkata traffic management. For instance, bangalore has india’s worst traffic jams all year and it can be attributed to bad traffic administration of state. On the other hand, kolkata has more population and the short traffic signal intervals makes the city observe less traffic jams.

    In conclusion, traffic congestion is a time consuming problem in our daily commute. however it can be avoided by using public transport, travelling together in single vehicle with colleagues and introduction of stricter laws and regualtion for transport by authorities.

    Traffic congestion prevails as one of the major problems faced by students, working people and every other individual that tends to travel. This writing comments on causes of traffic such as poor roads, accidents and the rising population. On the other hand, solutions like proper maintenance of roads, strict surveillance, use of public transportation may sound healthy to avoid traffic congestion.

    As a consequence of improper roads, accidents occur. Both are the most common reason for traffic jams. Sometimes, bad weather condition also causes traffic jams. For example, due to heavy rain during September, Delhi was lined with vehicles on the roads for hours. However, the rising population cannot be left out here. The use of private vehicles has caused a lot more traffic jams than ever.

    These conditions can be improved by giving road contracts to quality builders and repairing poor ones at a timely interval. Proper drainage facilities should be ensured so that the roads don’t flood during rainy seasons. Furthermore, people should start using public transport and should tend to share vehicles among their neighbours to reduce this severe issue. For instance, rules like carpooling, providing exclusive lanes for public transport wherein to develop an idea among the public, that they may reach sooner when public transport is used.

    On the whole, traffic congestion seems to be a hectic problem in this century and needs to be reduced. Let us come forward to help our community by using public transportation. The sooner we reduce it, the sooner the situation is going to be better.

    Many more people prefer to drive private vehicles. This caused traffic congestion all over the world. This issue will be discussed in this essay along with possible solutions. That may be implemented to alleviate this problem.

    To begin with, one of the main reason with this traffic blockage is urbanization. Firstly, people moved from countryside to cities for better job opportunity and better life, so cities population are increasing day by day. people who works in cities are prefer to travel by their own vehicles instead of public transport. Additionally, they commute to their offices during peak hours each day. This could lead to traffic congestion. Secondly, another cause of traffic jam is poor construction of roads, improper design of infrastructure, broken traffic lights. because of that people usually take longer time to travel short distance. This all could creates traffic roadblock.

    Even though, there are some steps can be taken to tackle this complication. More importantly, companies or industries should open their branches in to village side. so people no need to shift from hometown to cities. decentralization should take place. this could helps to prevent traffic jam. Also Government needs to create some basic rules and regulations that can strictly follow by citizens. this will also reduced traffic congestion. they should also maintain gridlock lights and separate lane for two wheelers and pedestrian to avoid traffic jam. moreover, reconstruct roads and use good quality of materials to built the roads, fixed the broken lights so people can easily travel to their destination within time.

    To conclude, traffic jam becomes problem in metropolitan cities but if we take some measures to reduce this problem, this complication would be solved.

    Nowadays, traffic jam has become a major concern in many big cities across the globe. This essay will first discuss the reasons behind this problem that are use of more personal vehicles and poor traffic management and then suggest possible measures such as use of public transport and proper strategic management which can be implemented to handle the situation.

    One of the major reasons is that the ownership of private vehicles has increased in last two decades which leads to soaring number of automobiles on roads. Secondly, many big cities were not built with proper planning and also there are narrower roads and streets which create difficulty for people to commute. For instance, the old area of the capital city of Delhi is usually congested the whole day due to the absence of traffic lights and proper sign boards.

    Certain measures which can be taken to deal with this situation are firstly, the government should increase the quality and frequency of public transport as it will attract more passengers and people should be encouraged to use car pool to work as much as they can during peak hours so that it decreases the no of vehicles on roads. For instance, the Delhi metro maintain continuous qualitative service and covers all major routes of the city, as a result many daily passengers like to commute through metro in the capital city. In addition, wide roads and bridges should be constructed through which traffic can move smoothly during peak hours. Furthermore, separate lanes should be constructed especially for bicycle and people should be encouraged to ride bicycles. For example, the government of Delhi have set up a goal to widened all the roads of the city and create separate lanes for bicycle by 2025.

    In conclusion, it is obvious that people prefer personal vehicles due to the inappropriate traffic management and poor public transportation which leads to huge traffic congestions, but possible solutions could be implemented to reduce congestions on roads .

    In this 21st century, science and technology have made life easy for human beings, but due to over utilization, the common obstacle is faced by almost every metro city which is the traffic jam. This essay will suggest that the main causes by this phenomenon are the migration of local community and easy access of private vehicles and then argue that development of the rural areas and utilization the public transport are the most viable solutions.

    To begin with, the foremost problems caused by traffic congestion are that a group of people have moved from rural area to urban and individual are preferring to use own vehicle. Firstly, there are number of reasons lead to civilization for resettling in metro, such as find employment, earn degree from reputed school or university, and enjoy modern life-style. Secondly, it has became easy to keep personal transport options for everyone, in addition many have more than one for the pastime. For instance, Mumbai got the first rank for the most congested metro city in the world, where almost every one faces the issue of traffic, because of overcrowding who are influenced by way of life and making the money.

    On the other hand, possible solutions to these problems would be increase the scope of living in the countryside and promote to use general transportation. Firstly, government have authority to take decisions, so they can focus on the development of the villages such as start the new factories so villager can find job at their own place, and open the schools and colleges so students can earn degree without leave their hometown. Secondly, ministry can make arrangement for locals to get easy transit from source to destination through their transportation, and promote some scheme to attract the passengers. For example, Delhi ministry has launched huge numbers of buses, and they declared transportation free of cost for the ladies and children, which has been getting most successful project for two years in the country.

    To conclude, steaming the traffic congestion caused by lack of opportunities in the rural and wish to use own wheels, but possible solutions could be taken initiative by administration to improve the possibility for the villagers and encourage to society for use their public services.

    Nowadays, an increasing number of people have chosen to live in large cities rather than rural areas, and this causes heavy traffic problem in major cities. In this essay, I am going to discuss the reasons behind this problem and examine possible ways to address it.

    To begin with, there are two causes behind this problem. Firstly, overpopulation of large metropolitan areas and depopulation in the countryside is a major reason for this. Since there are few jobs in the villages, people move out to large cities and look for jobs that pay better salaries. In addition, another reason is commuting time as generally, people travel to their office at the same hours, around 8 to 9. This leads to public transportations such as metros and trains being fully packed leading to increased traffic congestion.

    I believe that there are two possible ways to address such issues. The first solution is to enhance people moving to rural areas by enabling remote work option in domains wherever possible. In fact, if people are able to a find well-paid job in the countryside, around half of the city population would definitely move there and lowering personal or provincial taxes on rural area residents would make the migration faster, making it a cherry on top. Another solution is to vary commuting time, as the most remarkable traffic jam is caused by civilians on regular day jobs and varying office hours even by an hour will result in an ease in traffic jam during the peak hours.

    To conclude, there are two causes which are overpopulation in large cities and daily commuting. To solve this problem, it is better to move to rural side along with varying commuting time which can result in a decreased headcount of large cities.

    Traffic congestions is considered to be the most common problem especially while we are commuting in bigger cities. This essay will explain the major hurdles faced by people while travelling in the huge metropolis and the lack of infrastructure facilities in which the government needs to improve in that by finding valuable suggestions and recommendations.

    The foremost problems faced by commuting in cities caused by parking issues are the people who park on wrong sides of the road as they need to go to the market purchase especially for household needs. As vehicles started to park on roads, this leads to the rise in traffic congestions. Furthermore, many people come from faraway places to visit these famous landmarks and often leads to these issues especially during festivals due to lack of proper planning. For example, Muhammed Ali Road in Mumbai often get jammed during Ramzan festivals as people park their vehicles improperly.

    Possible solutions to these problems would be the addition of parking facilities which is closer to these markets so that parking on roadside be free movement for traffic. If people started to follow these rules, that would not cause problems to others. Furthermore, odd and even rules, garages, remote spaces thereby reduce the growth of snarl up in populated area. For example, Delhi city has introduced the smart parking system in one of their metro stations and had become very easier for people to utilise these facilities.

    To conclude there are still facts in which parking woes can be solved. If the government and the people follow these observations on day to day basis, that helps further to get succeed.

    In metropolitan cities, Traffic jam is the underlying vital issue that is experienced all the time. However, I believe that the increasing number of motor vehicles are highly responsible for these jams while the public transit is going through the worst conditions to tackle this situation. This essay will elucidate the root cause of increasing transportation block and the ways to mitigate these worsening conditions.

    The most significant source of Traffic bottleneck is the increment in the population of motor wagon owners. In other words, The car drivers find it convention to travel by car, rather than worrying to follow the strict public transport time table despite the fact that they still have to wait in long automobile queue during rush hours. For Instance, back from work I do not have to plan my ride on public transport and can leave at a sometimes since the frequency of traffic at certain times are extremely high. Thus , the comfortable feature of a car is a boon for its owner but a curse for the hams in urbans areas.

    The most prominent solution to tackle this challenge is pack and -ride-scheme. In this, people have to park their vehicle at the city outskirt while travelling to the remaining destination in the city via public transit which is quite affordable. In a survey, It had been recorded that this plan has been implemented in the north of Essex city which bolstered the drop in traffic by 10% will decrease while imposed on the south of the city. Therefore, this scheme proves to be an efficient remedy available to relieve the continuously increasing traffic.

    In conclusion, the park of the car at the city fringes while using city amenities to reach the remaining destination seems a viable strategy to lessen the automobile drivers within the city. Ultimately, these steps can not only mitigate the out of hold situation but will also provide decrement in polluting bodies.

    Traffic congestion is one of the major issues faced by the metropolitian cities. There are many factors, such as under-constructed roads and the rise of number of vechiles on the roads,which contribute to this phenomenon. This essay will suggest that there are certain adaptable solutions which can reduce this issue, if not mitigate completely.

    Traffic congestion is caused in metropolitian cities as they are overpopulated.People of rural areas migrate to cities because job oppurtunities are more compared to the place they live.Lots of people in the city own their private vechiles.People in city use the private vechiles to go to their regular jobs which makes the road overcrowded by the vechiles.For example in Los Angeles common misconceptions, people in Los Angeles love cars’ driving, which means the relation between people and their cars is very strong and described as love’s relation.Traffic congestion increased due to no underground railway and public transport in Los Angeles.The condition is further aggravated by issues of road design and poor maintenance in the urban areas, a manner of driving that treats other road users with little respect, erroneous information on traffic jams, and inefficient management by the responsible authorities.

    Few steps shall be taken to reduce traffic congestion.It can be done by increasing industries in rural areas.Prefering to use public mode of transport rather than private mode of transport.The government should create some traffic rules for each driver and pedestrian as well to reduce congestion. In other words, by creating some basic rules and regulations and by strictly following these, this congestion can be reduced which is a huge issue for many large countries around the world.Roads and highways of most of the cities are not designed properly to accommodate all the vehicles on the streets, thus, the jam is created. Moreover, lanes should be maintained by the drivers and traffic polices should monitor these things on the streets.Another solution is to enforce green taxes on the vehicles which exhaust fumes that have stringent effects on the environment. If the passengers have to pay taxes, they will be encouraged to use public transports.

    To conclude, as the jam is increasing on most of the cities all over the world, necessary steps should be taken by the governmental authorities to mitigate this. By maintaining these rules, many large countries can be freed from this issue.

    Nowadays, traffic jam has been a major concern across all the cities around the globe. This essay will discuss about the primary reason of people preferring their own vehicle for commuting

    followed by lack of infrastructure and also suggest various measures to tackle the situation.

    One of the major reasons is that the ownership of vehicles has increased over the past few years which has lead to the growing number of automobiles on roads. According to some reports, Chennai experienced one of the biggest traffic congestions in 2014 which lasted for more than 24 hours. Secondly, in many cities, the infrastructure has not been properly set up for public transport resulting in people opting for a private mode of transport over public transport. For example, Bangalore has narrow roads which cannot accommodate so many vehicles during peak hours. Thirdly, people do not follow traffic rules in order to reach their target destinations on time. For instance, people employed in the private sector usually prefer to travel on their own two-wheelers and tend to skip traffic signals to reach their office on time.

    There are certain measures that can be taken to handle this kind of situation. Firstly, the government should increase the quality of public transport by providing frequent services. In addition to this, fares of government transportation should also be reduced so that everyone can afford it. Another measure is to construct widened roads and bridges such that traffic can move smoothly even during peak hours. Furthermore, separate cycle lanes should be constructed and people should be encouraged to ride bicycles in order to lead a healthy life. Finally, major city centres or key connecting roads of the city must be declared car-free and penalty charges should be imposed on those who do not follow the rules.

    In conclusion, to mitigate the magnitude caused by rush-hour traffic, which is the main trigger of roadblocks, a flexible working mechanism and a shared transport scheme should be set up by the government in a reasonable manner at the earliest.

    Traffic congestion is one of the most prominent issue faced by nearly all the big cities nowadays.

    This essay will first suggest about the causes behind it and they are lack of it’s management by the police and longer trip durations and then argue that its effective control by the rules and regulaions of the government authorities and very wide roads contructions are the most viable solutions.

    The foremost problems caused by mismanagement of it by police are that lot of time waste especially for people travelling to far off places.

    And also nowadays as there are so many vehicles on the bigger cities,as a result it becomes quite hard for the police to manage the vehicles effectively for efficint continuos traffic flow.

    Furthermore,also due to so many automobile’s long queues on these cities,some people often try to break the traffic rules and try to get to their destination faster which eventually sometimes lead to lot of road accidents.

    Possible solutions to these causes would be to have skilled traffic police all over the big cities and automobiles proper management by the government authorities and construction of very wide roads.

    If the higher govennment officials conduct proper trainings for the traffic police on how to manage the traffic effectively then we will notice a smooth movement of the automobiles in the bigger cities.

    Furthermore,the central government also needs to plan on how to create the wide roads in the large cities for continuous movement of the vehicles.

    To conclude,poor traffic management by the police and narrow roads in the bigger cities will lead to lengthy trip durations and maybe sometimes violation of traffic rules by some people which can lead to harsh road accidents but if the higher government people takes efficient steps to combat these problems,then there will always be continuous automobiles flow in these cities and people won’t be breaking the traffic rules anymore and will be able to reach their destinations very timely and comfortably.

    With the extravagant lifestyle, one experiences living in a large metro city, there are also challenges such as dealing with day-to-day traffic congestion and spending hours of your morning waiting to reach your destination. The population that a city attracts each year is one of the prominent causes of the traffic issues. There are also some reasonable solutions such as increasing remote work opportunities that can help remediate these causes.

    Every year, a large chunk of the population moves to a large city, in the hope of living a fast-paced lifestyle with access to all the major facilities, however, in most cases, these cities are not developed to deal with the increased migration demands and are often left with an old infrastructure resulting in cramped highways, crowed roads. This leads to one of the biggest problems that one faces in a city – traffic congestion. Career advancements, modern lifestyle, and educational institutions are some of the major reasons that pull people towards a major city. Additionally, it is no less than a dream for any grown adult to own their personal vehicle. However, this dream can be costly when it comes to living in a major city as a large population also means large vehicle consumption every day.

    While it may seem that there are no practical solutions to traffic issues, it might not always be the case. There are many plausible examples across the globe where major cities reduced their traffic issues significantly with innovative planning. For instance, London started offering toll incentives for vehicles that promote carpooling – carrying more than one passenger. A survey proved this approach to be efficient as the traffic was reduced by 30% in the first month of the implementation and showed that people definitely valued discounts on heavy toll prices. Another successful example was seen in San Francisco, US, where many companies offered permanent work-from-home opportunities during the pandemic. The by-product of this perk also proved to be efficient in reducing the traffic significantly.

    In conclusion, while the problems that arise from growing traffic in many major cities seem inevitable, there are also many practical approaches that when implemented with proper planning can definitely help overcome the issues. However, it is something that has to be thought upon carefully and planned according to the demands and needs specific to the city.

(somehow this reason seems off the beat may be due to lack of valid explanation , but it certainly not in cohesion with the context given)

    Traffic gridlock is one of the major issues faced by the developed cities. A multitude of factors, such as under-constructed routes and the rise of number of automobiles on the roads, contribute to this phenomenon. This essay will suggest that there are certain adaptable solutions which can mitigate this issue, if not eradicate completely.

    Because of a large number of populace is attracted to metropolitan cities in search of livelihood every year, there is a sharp increase in the number of vehicles driven. As the cosmopolitan cities have humongous distances to cover, people prefer to travel in their personal conveyance. On top of this, poorly constructed and damaged roadways slows down the traffic flow, thereby creating bottlenecks at the intersections. For example, Los Angeles, one of the majorly developed cities in California, is considered to have the worst traffic in the entire United States because of the increasing population and ever going constructions.

    While the problems are real, there are some uncomplicated methods, if adopted, can reduce the impact of the issue. Major corporations have allowed their employees to work remotely from the comforts of their home, which has resulted in slight reduction of traffic. With other companies adopting this policy, this effect can be compounded resulting in opening up of streets for a free flow of traffic. Furthermore, an upgraded infrastructure, like filling up the potholes and increasing the number of smooth lanes will allow the motor vehicles to run without slowing down. For example, Las Vegas, in the United States has seen a large number of people migrating. To tackle the increasing traffic, additional lanes has been added on freeways for smoother traffic flow.

    To conclude, even though manifold reasons contribute towards traffic jams in urban areas such as migration of humans is search of a better life and unmanaged infrastructure, certain steps taken by corporations and government such as remote work for employees improving the infrastructure of the city can alleviate the problems.

    One of the major problem faced in most of the cities is traffic jam. According to me it is due to some of the reasons like poor infra structure, increase in number of private vehicles and rise in city population. So in this essay I am going to discuss some of the causes as well as solutions for this roadblock.

    First of all, most of the city roads are planned and built many years ago according to then population. As a result the roadways are not in good condition to accommodate the increasing number of vehicles at present. Next, due to increase in number of loan facilities from finance companies or from banks people show more interest to buy either two-wheeler or four-wheeler according to their needs and desire to avoid much crowded public transport .Additionally, due to recent boom in IT sector people started migrating from villages to cities for their better job opportunities which in turn resulted in more settlements in cities.

    Analyzing the causes, some steps can be taken from our side to reduce the congestion. People working in same company can share their vehicle and take turns to commute to their work place everyday. People can try to use public transport whenever possible. Individuals can go by walk or by two -wheeler to nearby places instead of using cars which occupies more space and fuel. Government authorities can try to extend the roadways wherever needed by converting two lane roads to four lanes. Making separate lanes for two wheelers will also try to reduce traffic jam to certain extent.

    To conclude here, though traffic jam is the biggest problem in most of the cities but every problem has got a solution. By taking apt and necessary steps both by the authorities as well as by public it can be handled well.
