There are many ways that such issues had been handled by applying measures as given below: 1. Restricted parking areas: This definitely discourages people to use their personal vehicles as they can't park their vehicles just anywhere. 2. Restricted use of roads: Toll booths and restriction implemented on the timings of some vehicles also helps reduce the traffic during peak hours. 3. Traffic updates: The Radio channels and television shows update the motorists and steer them away from the most congested roads. 4. The splitting of lanes on major roads separates the heavy vehicles from the lighter ones 5. The monitoring of number plates: There is some system that permits certain number plate’s vehicle on certain days. It reduces almost half of the traffic jams. The pollution is also reduced. Despite all of the above steps taken, there are still several more steps that need to be taken to control traffic issues in the developing countries. (Photo is mine: Another cloudy sky)

@marsha32 How is it in your country? Traffic isn't a issue just here.

@Daljinder I don't live in a big city and most of our main highways are now 4 lanes for faster travel on those.

@Daljinder Yes, we know, our big problems are the 60,000 Italians workers that cross the border every day to come to work here. What should we do? Not let them in to work?

The one I have not heard of before is the certain license plate's vehicle on certain days. I don't think that has ever been tried here.

@jaboUK Yes! Recently in National Capital, this odd-even thing was tried out. The vehicles with odd numbers on number plates and even number on number plates were allowed to drive on alternate days. Like today odd numbers can driven the next day even ones and so on.

I think Singapore allows certain number plates numbers on certain days. That would help control traffic.

I think a lot can be solved if there comes some infrastructure solutions to tackle the traffic.
