 Ans.                                                                   Traffic Jam

Life has become too monotonous amid modernization. People are always on the run, after money or material comforts. Status symbols have taken the lead in our society. One such is the owning of vehicles. Despite their convenience, their hindrances are many. How many of us prefer using a vehicle over ‘walking’ to our destination. Every one of us wants to own a vehicle. We take pride in owning it without bothering about how it brings chaos on the road. The increased number of vehicular traffic is leading to traffic jams and rash driving. Two-wheeler owners don’t mind pushing the pedestrians to the edges of the road to gain space for their movement. Even riding on pavements has become a common sight. This leaves no place for walkers. Today’s youngsters, even children at the age of 12, feel that riding a bike/scooty would give them a hero’s status. Being still a learner at school how is it possible for them to learn the traffic rules? Their parents show their status when they get the vehicle for their child. These kids are so energetic that they feel if they go at high speed, they are brave! Most of such kids, however, end up in accidents-either hitting poor passerby or being hits by any other vehicles, We the people, including the parents, should consider all these aspects and devise methods such as walking, using public transport and carpooling as healthy alternatives to personal vehicles.
