In order to solve traffic problems, governments should tax private car owners heavily and use the money to improve public transportation. What are the advantages and disadvantages of such a solution?

Man people are of the view that growing traffic congestion can be solved by adding some kind of charge on personal car use and use the collected funds for
betterment
Suggestion
the betterment
of public
transportation
. In my opinion, there are both pros and cons of
this
approach that need careful evaluation. On the
one
hand, asking people who own a car to pay some kind of fees serves dual benefit.
Firstly
, it discourages people to purchase new cars as they would be aware of additional expenses in terms owning a car.
This
, thereby, would lead to reduction in cars available on roads and contributing to
decongestion
.
Secondly
, taxes on personal vehicle and additional revenue generated due to more people using public vehicles would help

On the other hand
, in a developed country, people would tend to view it as their right to be able to move around from
one
place to another in luxury of their private vehicle. Having to pay a
lot
for
this
convenience might irk middle and upper class.
Also
, there can be

Suggestion
lots
of situations when

cannot simply always rely on public transport.
For example
, in case of an accident at home or medical emergency,
one
cannot just wait for public

Additionally
, bringing public commuting experience to a level where everyone can commute easily at any time for any amount of distance safely and securely might need

Include an introduction and conclusion

A conclusion is essential for IELTS writing task 2. It is more important than most people realise. You will be penalised for missing a conclusion in your IELTS essay.

The easiest paragraph to write in an essay is the conclusion paragraph. This is because the paragraph mostly contains information that has already been presented in the essay – it is just the repetition of some information written in the introduction paragraph and supporting paragraphs.

The conclusion paragraph only has 3 sentences:

  • Summary
  • Restatement of thesis
  • Prediction or recommendation

Example:

To summarize, a robotic teacher does not have the necessary disciple to properly give instructions to students and actually works to retard the ability of a student to comprehend new lessons. Therefore, it is clear that the idea of running a classroom completely by a machine cannot be supported. After thorough analysis on this subject, it is predicted that the adverse effects of the debate over technology-driven teaching will always be greater than the positive effects, and because of this, classroom teachers will never be substituted for technology.

Start your conclusion with a linking phrase. Here are some examples:

  • In conclusion
  • To conclude
  • To summarize
  • Finally
  • In a nutshell
  • In general
