Today Traffic issues are one of the main concerns that facing big cities, like London, Hong Kong and Tokyo, especially on working days rush hours, when inhabitants start moving from home to work at morning time, and on the opposite direction on evenings. The same problem is even noticed on weekends for shopping and entertainment purposes.
Some argument suggests reducing the figures of working people which is not reasonable because of the growing needs for work every day, even housewives started going to work to cover the high expenses of modern life.
To solve the problem of traffic, some governments implement some new systems to avoid the jam during working days, for instance, they impose an amount of money as traffic fees for passing some roads or for parking services, certainly, this idea can be implemented only on people who use their own cars. In addition, they activated the public transportation in very useful ways to serve must of the working people on rush hours, like buses, trains and underground metro.
On the other hand, new studies took place on Urban Design and researchers are considering the traffic problems for planning new areas or new cities and suggesting significant ideas, like moving the shopping malls and universities to rural areas or locate these activities on the city’s boundaries, even offices or government buildings are placed in different locations to distribute the heaviness on centers.
In conclusion, I agree with the argument of reducing the number of people who travel to the centers by moving a number of working places to other areas and locating some other activities like shopping malls on different parts of the city to avoid the possibilities of traffic problems in city centers.
