Traffic Jam

Traffic Jam

Traffic Jam is a universal issue in big cities and towns. It is a condition where vehicles cannot move generously and traffic comes to a standstill. It occurs almost all the district towns where a lot of vehicles play every day. It is a great trouble for the people living in metropolitan areas. Particularly it occurs near bus stand, railway crossing, turn of a road, at the junction of various roads or near a market. Heavy traffic jam occurs during the peak hours of the day. It occurs mostly in the morning and afternoon on working days when the everyday body tries to be present at the office in a short time or returns home as early as possible. It causes severe loss to our country and to our national economy.

The causes of traffic jams are many. The drivers are not willing to obey the traffic rules. In proportion to our population roads have not increased. Want of sufficient spacious roads wants sufficient traffic police, violation of traffic laws and the like. The haphazard playing of vehicles like rickshaws, buses, scooters, etc and disorganized parking of vehicles and small shops in the footpaths are the key basis of traffic jam. The violation of traffic rules, unplanned roads and a huge number of transports, inexperienced drivers and inadequate traffic police are other causes of traffic jam. Roadside shops and illegal car parking also cause a traffic jam.

Traffic jam causes innumerable sufferings to people. It kills our time and hampers our works greatly. Students cannot reach schools on time. It kills our time and lessons our working hours. It causes great suffering to the ambulance carrying dying patients and the fire brigade vehicles. This problem can be solved by constructing spacious roads, making the drivers aware of the traffic rules, controlling the unlicensed vehicles and imposing strict laws. The increasing traffic jam hampers our economy. So well spacious roads should be constructed.

However, this problem can be solved by adopting some measures. The solution to the problem is the crying need of the day.  One-way movement of vehicles should be introduced. Traffic rules should be imposed strictly so that the drivers are bound to obey them.  The driver should be trained in order to cope with the other developed nations. Unlicensed vehicles should be brought under control. After doing all these things we can hope to have a good traffic system for our easy and comfortable movement. The sooner the problem is solved, the better not only for saving time but also for saving a life.
