Model Answer 1:
Advancements in technology and infrastructure have revolutionized human life and public transport is no exception. Now-a-days Government transport mediums are rationalized. Does it mean dwellers should not use private vehicles to travel? I believe, owing to excellent commutation systems world-wide, citizens should avoid using their own cars. This opinion is reliant on below arguments.
To begin with, on account of "global warming" warnings, various nations have developed a robust transport system to reduce number of private vehicles on the road and subsequently to alleviate the green house gas emissions. It can be confirmed by the environmental department's report from India. As per the statistics in the report, if the people utilize only 60% of the government transports then the pollution will reduce to 40% in metro cities. Thus, denizen must support the initiatives by traveling via government travel mediums.
In addition, public transports have generic dustbins to support the rubbish while travel, which may not be possible in private cars. For an example if people commute by personal vehicles they will throw out the rubbish outside on the road, which will cause the pollution and sometime even block the sewage system of the city. For an instance, recent sewage blockage in Mumbai, India was on account of rubbish blocking the pathway. Thus, commuting with government vehicle will assist in adequate handling of rubbish and assist legislators in reducing the pollution.
To sum up, in the view of mitigating issues of global warming and rubbish packages on the roads, people must travel by public transport and make earth a better place to live in.
