Topic: Some people say that increasing the price of petrol is the best way to tackle traffic congestion.
Do you agree or disagree? What are other ways to solve it?
Over the last two decays, with respect to the issue of tackling traffic congestion, a series of attitudes have been put forward. Some are on the view that increasing the price of petrol is the best approach to untie the traffic congestion whilst others subscribe to the idea that there are other possible solutions. I personally concede that the idea put forth by the second group is more logical. In the following paragraphs, I will elaborate on my reasons for this perspective.
In the first place, rise in petrol price contributes to using more public transportation by individuals. However, the truth is that wasting much time waiting and travelling between bus stops in the long run makes a difference. Undeniably, petrol performs an imperative role in people’s life which increasing the price paves the way for getting the price of food and service tremendously high because it determines any product’s price. All in all it will serves as the personal burden for people. These lead us to conclusion that traffic congestion problem could be improved efficiently with other reasonable ways.
To cut a long story short, the best solution is that the government should establish a good traffic infrastructure by widening road, building more overhead bridges and so on which is the cornerstone of tackling traffic congestion. Laws should be implemented and imposed so that no one can violate the traffic rules. Old and unfit vehicles should not be present in the roads and drivers should be properly trained before letting them run the vehicles on the roads.
In conclusion, increasing the price of petrol for tackling traffic congestion is not logical. The growing rate of traffic stems from a wide range of causes urgently required to be considered cautiously.
