The best way to deal with the rising problem of traffic and transportation is to encourage people to live in cities rather than in the suburbs or in the countryside. To what extent do you agree?

Traffic congestion has become a major problem in almost all countries. Some people argue that the easiest way to solve


problem is to encourage all people to


to cities. Of course, people living in cities have easy access to all amenities and they do not have to travel much;


, I strongly disagree with the argument that everyone should


to cities. Any



will only compound the problems.

Most cities in the world are already struggling to accommodate their existing population.

For example

the quality of living will suffer.

While it is true that cities offer jobs and have all amenities within an area of a few


a metric unit of length equal to 1000 meters (or 0.621371 miles)

, space constraints are a big issue in all cities. There is a limit to the number of people that a city can house. As


the population

increases the need for housing and other amenities will increase. Since space is already

is impossible to build homes for all the people who migrate to cities. When demand exceeds supply, the price will increase.


is already evident in all major cities where homes are beyond the reach of a middle class family.

Maintaining adequate levels of sanitation is another challenge that crowded cities face. The existing infrastructure of most cities cannot absorb any more migrants. If more people arrived, cities would become filthier and less healthy. Pollution


increases with an increase in the number of residents in a place.

To conclude, traffic and transportation problems cannot be solved by encouraging all people to migrate to cities. Any



will only worsen the quality of life in cities as most of them are already struggling to meet the basic needs of their existing population.
