Reports of traffic jam from different citiesVery often we come across a report or a photograph about traffic jams in different cities. Today there is photograph from Gurgaon which shows thousands of motor vehicles stranded on a junction. Report says it is the worst-ever traffic jam. This is from the Delhi- Gurgaon Expressway. The reason stated is heavy rain.
These traffic jams are to a great extent due to the addition of vehicles on the roads. Many of our roads cannot carry these many vehicles. Our Governments should come forward to improve the road conditions or must control the production of vehicles. People also can contribute by controlling the use of own vehicles, they should try to travel in public vehicles as far as possible and take own vehicles in emergencies only. Also people can try sharing vehicles if going in the same direction. All these not only reduce the vehicle population on roads but also help reducing the air pollution. Individuals can save money also.
