SHOULD CARS BE BANNED FROM CITIES IN FAVOR OF PUBLIC TRANSPORT?

Urban traffic problems are now crucial in most of the countries in terms of congestion, road safety and the environment all together. Many cities worldwide are establishing change of their transport solutions from private convertibles to more environment-friendly and citizen engrossed means (Hofer et al., 2018). Some cities has entrenched plans to introduce measures of reducing traffic by for example initiating car free days and investing in public transports.

This is due to the fact that cars cause significant harm to the public from the emissions, noise e .t .c. However, it is still a quandary on whether cars should be banned. This is because they are the main means of transport and banning them could create considerable transport issues. On the other hand, it could lead to enhancement of utilization of public spaces due to reduced parking space and major advances in climate improvement.

Advantages of banning cars in the cities will include; improvement in air quality due to reduction of emissions from cars, new business opportunities since the people who use cars will find it hard to walk and may use bicycles or even the electric scooters instead. Spaces for shops and restaurants would increase and in relation improve security in the streets, the banning of cars will encourage the investments in green technologies, and many more (Nieuwenhuijsen et al., 2016).

On the other hand, banning of cars has its own disadvantages including; life would become less efficient compared to life with cars, many taxi drivers would become jobless, it would also lead to time trouble as well as crowding in public transports which is likely to cause spread of diseases and with substitution efforts, traffic jam is likely to be encountered.

In general, banning of cars has significant positive effects on the streets safety. Fewer cars in the streets means fewer accidents. The limitation of cars will allow for the improvement of environment and as well increase opportunities of more accessible options. In my opinion, it is wise to limit the use of cars in favor of public transportation in cities.
