Nowadays, the number of private cars on the streets is becoming increasingly higher, especially in big cities. Because of that, there are some concerns that cause negative impacts on the environment and society in general. This essay will discuss the negative effects of over dense private cars and also will provide solutions of over-reliance on using cars.
The number of private cars on the streets has become outnumbered and it still growing. People have various reasons why they choose private cars rather than public transport for them to commute, such as it is convenient and comfortable using their own cars. Other than that, they do not need to wait for buses in bad weather such as rain or strong wind. Because of these reasons, the number of private cars on the streets is growing rapidly which also can lead to serious damage to people lives.
First of all, there is more conjunctions and traffic jams on the streets. People need more time to transport from one place to another and they can spend longer time on the street. In Jakarta, for example, the number of cars on the street of Jakarta has become overcrowded. Traffic jams especially during rush hours in the morning and the evening have become a regular thing for the residents. That is why people are becoming more and more stressed from being stuck in a traffic jam for hours. Other than that, the oil fuels from cars released CO2 that can cause severe damage to the environment and to people's health. For instance, air pollution from cars might risk the human's health system, such as respiratory illness, lung cancer and also eye irritations. Other than that, air pollution will also cause the greenhouse effects that lead to global warming.
To prevent the negative effects of overcrowded cars on streets is by promoting other public transportations, such as commuter trains, monorail and buses or using other transport alternatives such as bikes or walking. For example, in the Netherland people are using bikes and ferries for transport.
To conclude, with good coordination and promoting on the benefits of using public transportations by the local government including improving transport services. I strongly believe that people will eventually move their habits from using private cars to other alternatives.
