Increasing the price of petrol is the best way to solve growing traffic and pollution problems.

To what extent do you agree or disagree?

What other measures do you think might be effective?

My essay:

These days, it is clear that bumper-to-bumper traffics and pollution are serious and important problems and we must tackle them before it is too late. Exhaust fumes from millions of vehicles are causing irreparable damages to our environment. One of the ways that is suggested is increasing petrol’s price. It’s not the best way to solve these issues and we need other measures in the long term.

Although, increasing the price of petrol may decrease the number of cars in the street, but it can make distressing consequences. Almost all the factories and industries use fossil fuels. So, high price of these fuels would have bad impacts on these industries and hence, they increase the price of their products to compensate fuel costs. What is more, shipping and transporting costs would increase. As a result of these, there would be an inflation in the market and then, the price of everything will increase dramatically, such as foods and drugs which are two essentials in the lives of all segments of society, particularly low economy residents.

There are more effective and promising solutions to control and minimize these problems. The government can improve the public transportation services. For example, they can devote some roads for riding bicycles. In fact, people can have access to clean and friendly resources to environment. They also can use modern public vehicles instead of the old ones, like solar cars or electrical buses which are used by the USA in the long run.

All in all, the main change comes from public awareness. As a matter of fact, people should know about pollutants and traffic harms for the environment and their health, and the ways they can help to tackle these issues and try to leave their selfish actions.

In conclusion, to solve the problems of traffic and pollution, beside of clean fuels and high-quality transportation, there is a need to raise people’s awareness.

These days, it is clear that bumper-to-bumper traffic [ 1] and pollution are serious and important problems, and we must tackle them before it is too late. Exhaust fumes from millions of vehicles are causing irreparable damages to our environment. One of the ways that is suggested is increasing petrol’s the price of petrol. It’s However, I do not believe that is the best way to solve these issues and we need other measures in the long term.

Although, increasing the price of petrol may decrease the number of cars in on the street, road, but [ 2] it can make distressing have other detrimental consequences. Almost all the factories and industries use fossil fuels. So, Thus, a high price of for these fuels would have bad debilitating impacts on these industries and hence, they would be forced to increase the price of their products to compensate for the extra fuel costs. What is more, Additionally, shipping and transport ing costs would increase. As a result, of these, there would be an inflation rises in the market and then, the price of everything will increase dramatically, even when it comes to basic and essential items such as food and drugs. which are two essentials in the lives of all segments of society, particularly low economy residents.

The For a start, governments can improve the public transportation services. [ 3] For example, they can devote some roads for riding bicycles.

[ 1]: “traffic” is uncountable. The reason a spell checker might not highlight it is that “traffic” can be a verb, so the spell checker thinks it’s a verb in the third person singular form.

[ 2]: “although” already has “but” built into it.

[ 3]: Bicycles are not an example of public transport. In fact the rest of that paragraph is not well thought out. This is where you risk losing marks for poor cohesion and coherence.

[ 4]: Again, that is not well phrased. It should also be lumped with the previous paragraph (since it’s another proposed solution).
