Model Answer 1:
Nowadays, there is an ongoing debate about the necessary primer solution to be taken to face the congested traffic as well as the pollution created problems. Some argue that increasing the price of fuel is the best way out for this particular issue. This essay- as my opinion lead to, an intermediate position can be taken through some considerations given below.
I personally believe that gasoline price must be increased. Massive improvement in vehicle number in the street, whether it is a narrow one or a boulevard, contributes in some ways of traffic jam and also pollutions. Moreover, the utilizers of the cars over the road can be recognized most of them as rich and wealthy man which the price does not matter for them. The rocketed price of petroleum means less use in vehicle, especially private ownership, that can bring more or less, direct or indirect, better transportation for all.
However, I believe that this solution must be accompanied by other attempts such as providing higher quality and quantity in public transportations. People need mobilizations as well as they need food and housings, recently so government should see these as a basic input for their service in transportation matter. For instance, the security and the enough commuters are important. They want to be secure so government should provide security officer in appropriate number that could lead to convenient in reaching the destinations. They also need enough vehicles with short-scheduled arrivals so they will not come late to attend their meetings, for instance. Besides, there should be high improvement in quality of roads as well as the stations which should be added. As the result, there will be increasing number shifting utilization in mobile from private to public transportation.
To sum up, push the price of oil up is the great idea to deal with the transportation problems, but the stakeholders also have obligations to be finished to get the highest result.
