Traffic problems in Third World Countries

Traffic problems remain one of the major problems faced all over the world mainly in the third world countries. These countries having major population growth is one of the major factors in the traffic problems. With rapidly increasing use of the vehicles in the developing countries, the number of deaths and injuries due to road accidents are expanding too. The people mostly prefer their own transport over the public transport for their comfort and ease. So with the now middle class group able to afford to buy a car, the vehicles on the roads are increasing tremendously and so is the pollution in the air. The more the vehicles on the road, the more is the traffic congestion. The traffic congestion leads to many problems in itself like: 1. Delay for meeting at the appointed times. 2. Delays in medical emergencies for the sick on the road. 3. Wastage of time while sitting idle in the road traffic. 4. Stress and frustration increases in the motorists. 5. And last but not the least is the road rage which often turns violent leading to many deaths and severe injuries. Photo by Pixabay

The traffic problem is a social problem.The problem of people not just drive.The government should improve traffic, more into some bridge road.Now the traffic can not carry so many vehicles.It's like Xiamen.On holidays, more than 10 million vehicles.We can travel by bus.

I've been living with traffic here in Metro Manila. To avoid it, I sleep early (7 pm) so that I could wake up early (4 am). By 6 am, I'm already at the Firm. Since we observe flexible working hours, I also leave the office by 3 pm to avoid rush hour. I arrive at my place around 4 pm.
