Increasing the price of petrol is the best way to solve growing traffic and pollution problems. To what extent do you agree or disagree? What other measures do you think ,might be effective
Some individuals argue that the heightened price of petrol is the most effective method of tackling to growing traffic and environmental pollution. While I accept that this method is good in some ways, I believe that there are better measures for this problem. To begin with, I believe it is a good idea to raising the price of petrol. Firstly, goverments introduce the heightened price of petrol, which may restrict people to using the private cars. As a result, citizens have the tendency to use bicycles or public transport rather than using private cars. Besides, increasing the price of petrol has also detrimental effects on the life of people. Due to the heightened price pf petrol, ticket price also increases. Therefore, specially low-income people may face financial problem. However, I would argue that there are better methods of decreasing congestion and protecting environment. The first one is to raise people’s awareness about consequences which may occur . For example, Vietnam government held the meeting to promote the movement called Green Summer. Many teenagers supported this movement and did instructions of the organiser. Another measure is that governments should invest a huge amount of money on improving public transport and constructing new rail way for bikers. In conclusion, I believe apart form increasing the price of petrol there are more effective ways to solve growing traffic and environmental pollution.
