What is Traffic jam?
A traffic jam is a long line of vehicles that cannot move forward because there is too much traffic, or because the road is blocked by something.
The major factor behind traffic Jam in Bangladesh:
There are many reasons behind traffic jam in Bangladesh. Among them some major factors are as follows:
➢ Undisciplined traffic signal in the road. ➢ Indiscipline among the road user. ➢ Might is right, everybody are free to park their vehicle on Road. ➢ No knowledge of traffic rules which encourage violating the rules. ➢ Enforcement of rules by dishonest persons who are busy in collection of illegal money from traffic rules violators. ➢ Heavy numbers of vehicle on roads.
Traffic Jam and its reason…show more content…
• No private car will be used by students for going to school, colleges and universities. • An efficient transportation system must be ensured for common people for going to office, companies and markets etc. • Traffic rules for all should be the same. • The traffic police must be trained properly. • We all have to be very much attentive to the traffic signals. • The road should not be blocked for a long time for the ministers and high officials. • Public awareness has to be telecasted through mass media. • Rail way communication has to be developed for minimizing the transportation load. Many rail roads’ like Jessore-Goalanda have been damaged and stopped communication for a long time. • Railway sector is more or less corrupted. That’s why this sector can be privatized by taking proper steps because private ownership ensures efficiency and comparatively moderate corruption. • Old and out of date busses should be replaced. • Rickshaw pullers must be properly guided to drive well so that jam does not occur.
We do hope our elected government will do something for it. We also hope that government will check the unfit vehicles and over loading problem to minimize the accident and save valuable life at the time of Eid, Puja etc.
