Federal Government PBL
7th pd | program: Roads
What the problem is:
How we SOLVE the problem:
Increasing the amount of buses will reduce the amount of people who drive their own car.
As you can see, wide streets allow for more lanes of cars, which, in turn reduce traffic.
What specific ACTIONS can solve the problem:
subways: People like riding subways because they go under everything, which, in turn lets it avoid the buildings, roads, and parks of the surface world.
widen streets: Widening streets will decrease traffic because people do not magically appear to fill the roads so if we add more lanes, then there is more space for people to fill in and the traffic lines will be shorter.
direct routes: Adding more direct routes through cities will make shorter lengths of road for people to have to drive to get to their destination. These shorter routes will create for less commuting time. Even if it does not shorten the traffic lines, more direct routes will definitely shorten the time you have to sit in them.
