It does not matter who you are or where you are from, rush hour traffic would have been something that we would have all experienced at some point in our life! Even from a young age most people would have memories of trying to reach to school in time despite the heavy traffic and once you grow older, it is time to beat the traffic to get to work on time! It seems like a never ending cycle and with the developing world, traffic has only managed to get worse. With a lot of various individuals working more in the world right now, rush hour traffic levels have risen and have managed to double over the years. Some countries however, have strict laws and rules that manage to control heavy traffic all day and thus these places have become almost traffic free. Why should we take more interest in controlling or managing traffic? It really has become a major issue and here are some reasons as to why it is important to manage traffic.
For the environment
It is true when we say that a lot of people think that running a car or moving on the road burns more gas and releases toxic gases in to the air than a car that is sitting still in traffic. However, this is not the case. The reality is completely different and that is exactly why we should consider traffic control more seriously. When a car is sitting still and moving and stopping and then moving again, like a car in traffic, it takes up more gas and energy to accelerate the car thus it releases more toxins in to the environment than a car that is constantly moving.
Events take place in the world every single day and while some are irrelevant, most are important events. When there is a lot of heavy traffic, even with the use of traffic controllers, it is going to be a main reason of disturbance for events such as school events or even political events. This is another reason why we must try to reduce the amount of traffic.
Studies have shown that when more people face negative situations such as sitting in traffic for hours and hours, it is bound to result in an aggressive mood from the said individual and this could later turn in to more serious issues as well. Not a lot of people think of this, but facing heavy traffic everyday can surely take a toll on our mental health.
