has become an enormous obstacle for

essay will look at some primary causes of
this
, and offer some possible solutions to the problems. There are two main reasons why the
congestion
in metropolises is on the rise. The

reason is that since a large

Secondly
, politicians should restrict the excessive usage of individual

by imposing higher taxes or charging a
congestion
fee. In London,
for example
, there is a
congestion
charge of 10% per day for every car for drivers going to the city during rush hours, which has helped to discourage

traffic
congestions, and measures can be implemented to tackle
this
issue.
