It is often argued that decreasing the demands of
transportation
is the only key to suppress
city
congestion. In my opinion, I partly agree with the ideas of reducing people's need to travel, but it is not the only solution for
traffic
. On one hand, in order to decrease people movement from one place to another by vehicles is by developing a smart
city
and only could happen with the collaboration of property developers and government.
This
is an idea of recreating a small area inside a
city
itself with a lot of properties.
However
, unlike many developed countries which has a stable and reliable economy to invest in the project, other developing countries are still unable to afford that feature. Due to the high amount of cost and issues which are considered higher in priority than congestion.
For example
, Jakarta which is the capital
city
of Indonesia are popular for its daily
traffic
jam. Even though Indonesia is not considered a poor country, but the amount of money that could be poured are still low compared to education, health, and food supplies.
Thus
, without enough money and commitment from the government, many developers are unable to trust and invest in
this
project. That's why, reducing
traffic
in urban area are not the only and best solution.
On the other hand
, planning and developing a public transport is still the most favourite method to bring down congestion in a
city
. One of the main reason of people in urban area choose to use private accomodation is poor facility provided.
For instance
,
city
in many developing countries,
such
as Bangkok, does not have a decent public
transportation
to use. The buses and trains are not maintained properly and only cover a few routes to explore.
Consequently
, people will leave public transport and choose to buy their own vehicles. So, the government need to upgrade public transport for people to use. In conclusion, by reducing people needs of
transportation
is not the only solution for
traffic
because it is a difficult task to be done. Using public
transportation
could be the best way to decrease the amount of vehicles used by citizens.
