The first car appeared on British roads in 1888. By the year 2000 there may be as many as 29 million vehicles on British roads. Alternative forms of transport should be encouraged and international laws introduced to control car ownership and use. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Nowadays there are more cars as compared to number of cars 50-60 years back. The number has drastically risen in past few years. If this trend continues I am sure one day there would not be roads to walk. In this essay I will present couple of solution that could be implemented to tackle this rising issue. When cars were introduced, it was a luxury item and only the niche rich crowd could afford it. But today, with easy bank loans and schemes, every family has now 2 cars. Due to this, the number of cars on road has reached its peek causing long traffic lines and deadly pollution. Also, roads are getting widened which directly leads to cutting of trees whereas in metro cities such as Bangalore, for covering 2 kilometers by car, it takes almost 2 hours. There are various solutions to this problem, firstly, alternate forms of transport should be encouraged more by the government and reducing the transport fares to a nominal rate so that everyone could afford it. The public transportation options such as metros, buses, local trains should be properly maintained and doubled in number so that it is easily accessible. Secondly, international laws should be implemented for ownership of car, meaning one family should buy only 1 car and to buy second car first car should be sold or destroyed. If this law is implemented then enormous number of cars will be reduced. In conclusion to this essay, I strongly believe that alternative forms of transport and international law for ownership of car should be implemented else that day is not far when there wont be enough space in road to walk.
