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?

In an attempt to rectify the exacerbating
traffic
congestion and
air
pollution
problem, the oil
price
hike is deemed as the most effective solution for
this
. I fully disagree with
this
view as there are other remedial measures, far more viable and pragmatic, to reverse mentioned issues. Making gasoline

expensive would highly unlikely

ffort to contain these problems were of complete futility.
Furthermore
, increasing petroleum charges would affect the prices of goods and services. Oil
price
is directly proportional to commodity prices.
This
means that, when petroleum cost increases, costs of products and services increases as well.
This
trend would surely affect consumers in general and would delimit their purchasing capacity. There are measures,
however
, that can help resolve the above-mentioned issues in a more pragmatic and sensible way.
Firstly
, legislation dedicated solely on effective
traffic
management must be enacted. Like in the case of Japan where every family is limited to have only 1 car. To assure public compliance, Japan invested largely on public transport facility,
hence
, now enjoys smooth
traffic
flow and low urban
air
pollution
index
as a result
of reduced private car usage for daily commutes.
Additionally
, bike culture has to be encouraged by way of dedicating pavements for bikers to use daily for commuting to and from work.
This
way, the oil
price
increase will not be necessitated and
air
quality will be improved. In conclusion, making petroleum's
price
exorbitant, would only affect the general public profoundly and would, by no means, curtail the growing problems of
traffic
and
air
pollution
.
Instead
, legislation for effective road
traffic
management like improving existing transport facility and encourage bike-culture would practically give resolution to the aforementioned issues.
