Increasing the price of petrol is the best way to solve growing traffic and pollution problems. To what extent do you agree and disagree. What other measures do you think might be effective.

These days, petrol is considered to be a primary resource to run vehicles. Some would argue that, if we increase per litre gasoline's price,
then
it can reduce
traffic count
Suggestion
the traffic count
and pollution problems. According to my personal opinion, I could not agree with the idea of proponents as we need to
first
identify root causes and we should increase awareness among people to mitigate these
traffic
and environmental degradation issues.
To begin
with, petrol is a mere ingredient only, but the primary factors are like ever increasing motors' count and uncontrolled carbon dioxide emissions. To simplify, we need to
first
monitor the number of vehicles getting registered from the Transportation Departments everyday. We need to introduce some policy to control registration process and by
this
way we can
also
contain the number of new cars on the road along with improving
traffic
flows.
Moreover
, our pollution department should introduce more stricter motor checking policies to limit the emission of CO2 and other pollutants. On the top of that, federal authorities could check with vehicle manufacturers to introduce more technologically enhanced combustion of motors so the environment can be saved.
Furthermore
, many problems can be solved by raising awareness and
this
traffic
and pollution issues are
also
not an exception. To elaborate, we need to do more and more campaigns to show what will happen if we continue to destroy our mother nature. Governments
also
need to increase the number of public motors
such
as buses, trains
and
Suggestion
And
maintain the highways so that it can not only smoothen
traffic
, but
also
reduce carbon footprints.
For example
, a study conducted by The Oxford University
last
year, by improving public transport in The New Hampshire, the pollutants in the air were decreased by 39%.  To conclude, by the increasing price of petrol, we cannot solve what we are aiming to do, but we will end up in making civil unrest. I would like to suggest, the government and local authorities should make more people aware of
this
problem and enforce laws to maintain a particular standard for emissions of all kinds of motors.
