Nowadays, number of private cars has increased, so does the pollution in many cities. Pollution is not the only problem caused by it. It has increased the number of accident and traffic jam in peak hours. To solve this problem, we must track from its root.
The first question that comes up in my mind is why do people can get private cars easily? As we can see this day, a wealthy family usually owns more than 3 cars in their garage. One car is for the husband, one car for the wife and the rest of it for their children. Besides their personal needs and their purchase ability, easiness of owning private cars also influences the amount of it. The presence of credit card or other credit product, the low annual tax for owning private, and low cost related to it like fuel cost, toll cost and parking cost makes everybody won't hesitate their decision to have their own private cars.
The next question is why do people prefer using private cars than public transportation? Although various public transportation available, people usually prefer using private cars because it is simpler and more convenient. Moreover, security is also being an issue. These days, crime often occurs in public transportation.
To reduce the amount of private cars, in my opinion, there are two approaches. The first one is government approach. Government should be more accertive to the cost of fuel, parking and toll. I think it's better to reduce their subsidy and use it to other critical sector like to equalize the development and educational level of each province. Also, government should be more concern to public transportation system, like how the public transportation become more convenient, on schedule, simple and secure.
The second approach is to change our point of view. We should think that use public transportation or other less pollution transportation like bicycle, as an opportunity to live healthier and to make this earth less pollution.
