Traffic Jam

Passage 1 – By Chen Xinran

There are many traffic problems in Pujiang. First, the streets are narrow. What’s more, the roadworks are too slow and they take up too much space on the narrow roads. As a result, there are lots of traffic jams. Second, there are no bus or bicycle lanes in our town, which means even buses will get stuck in the traffic jams and there are lots of accidents with cyclists. Third, many people disobey the traffic rules. For example, some drivers may change their direction suddenly and people cross the roads when lights are red.

To solve the problems, there is much to be done. The government should make the road wider and build the bus lanes and bicycle lanes. The workers should speed up the roadworks. The policemen can find the people who disobey the traffic rules. And people should be taught to obey the rules.


Passage 2 – By Fei Jingwen

Traffic problems occur in cities which are growing fast.But even small cities such as my hometown Pujiang suffer.

There are lots of traffic problems in my hometown. First, the roadworks go on very slowly and take up too much time. As a result, there are lots of traffic jams. Second, there are no bus lanes.This means that buses get stuck in traffic jams, too. Third, there is no room for bicycle lanes. So there are lots of accidents with cyclists. Fourth, people always disobey traffic rules.

There are some solutions to these problems. First, the workers should speed up their work. Second, why not widen the street to build bus lanes and bicycle lanes? Third, we should teach the people who disobey traffic rules. And it is also a good idea to find them.

I believe that everyone will get into the center of town in a good mood if we solve these problems.


Passage 3 – By Jiang Yu`ning

The traffic problem in our town is serious. The town is old and the streets are narrow, so there is no room for bus lanes and bicycle lanes. This means that buses always get stuck in traffic jams. Also, there are many accidents with cyclists. And there are some roadworks on the main street. They repair the street slowly. As a result, traffic can easily become congested near the roadworks.

There are some solutions to these problems. The government should widen the streets and build bus lanes and bicycle lanes. It’s a good idea to build some underground parks. And there should be more policemen to direct the traffic. The roadworks should speed up in order not to cause traffic jams. I hope that these solutions could help people travel in a good mood.


Passage 4 – By Li Jiangsong

With the development of society, many people have their own cars. As a result, traffic jams are becoming more and more serious in our cities, which has caught the public’s attention.

There are a great many reasons for this problem. Firstly, the streets are narrow. There are not enough roads to allow many cars to run at the same time. And the roadworks going on very slowly. Secondly, the increase of private cars is the main cause of the crowded roads. Thirdly, some people disobey traffic rules. For example, some drivers may change their direction suddenly and people cross the road when lights are red. Another cause involves little public transport.

To solve these problems, the following suggestions might work. Instead of driving cars, people should take buses or travel by bicycles. And the government should also pay more attention to the improvement of public transportation, such as opening up more bus routes, building more footbridges or subways and so on. But the most important thing is that people should be educated to obey traffic rules.


Passage 5 – By TONY

With the development of the economy in Pujiang, more and more cars have appeared on the road, which caused a lot of problems.

First, the roads in Pujiang are too narrow to let a car pass as our government set too many car parks on both sides of the road. Second, roadworks usually take a long time to finish. And the most serious problem is that some drivers and pedestrians don’t obey the traffic rules, which badly influenced the traffic.

However, it is easy to solve the problems above. As for the narrow roads, I think the local government should give up the car parks along the way. Instead, they can build a parking lot at a particular place for cars, so that our roads will be much wider. In order to finish the roadworks more quickly, we can employ more workers to do the work at the same time. As for the last problem, I think all of us should work together to tell the people who don’t obey the traffic rules about the dangers of breaking the traffic rules so that they can realize their mistakes and correct them.


Passage 6 – By Luo Sirun

With the development of society, almost every family has their own cars, so traffic is more and more crowded. Even in Pujiang, a small county, the traffic is much more crowded than before.

There are four factors which contribute to this problem. First, the increase of private cars is the main cause of the problem. Second, some roads are too narrow to run on. Third, many roads are under repair. What’s more, some drivers always overtake and some pedestrians always cross the road when the traffic light is still red.

To solve the problems, there is much to be done. First, people should try to take public transport instead of driving. Second, the government should widen the roads. Third, the workers need to increase the speed of their work. Fourth, the transport policemen should fine and educate the people who disobey the rules.

I believe that if we can do like this, the traffic will improve a lot.
