The use of cars and motorcycles causes transportation difficulty in cities. Why do people continue to use cars and motorcycles in cities? What is the best way to solve this problem?
Roads in many cities are becoming extremely congested, which can be ascribed to the frequent use of private cars and motorcycles. There are two predominant factors why people still show much reliance on vehicles, and this thorny issue can promisingly be resolved.

To commence, the freedom and flexibility that cars and motorcycles offer should be responsible for such reliance. As mass transit operates according to a set schedule and may even be unavailable in some remote areas, passengers have to either wait a long time at the station or transfer to another transit, leading to a longer travelling distance and more waiting time. By stark contrast, automobiles allow commuters to travel whenever and wherever they want based on their own timetable. Besides, cars also have an edge over public transit in terms of comfort. Compared with taking public transportation, by which travellers have to crowd into a bus or a metro, tolerating the cramped and smelly carriage, commuting by car allows people to enjoy the cosy environment offered by the equipped audio, air conditioning and seats.

Considering the slower traffic flow, some schemes should be prioritised. Of all the measures, the best one is to provide the public with more options of transport that are accessible, comfortable, punctual and affordable. To this end, the government can better the public transit, such as opening more metro lines, optimising the schedule of buses and undergrounds, and upgrading the facilities of the stations and carriages. Additionally, more shared bicycles can be offered to motivate commuters who travel within a short distance, and to guarantee the safety of cyclists, roads should be redesigned with bicycle lanes added. Given more convenient alternatives, citizens are more likely to desert the current travelling mode, thus alleviating the tension of heavy traffic.
Ø punctual adj. 准时的
Ø better vt. 完善

To recapitulate, since possible factors and feasible remedies have been enumerated, the issue of traffic congestion can hopefully be addressed with the aforementioned policies implemented.
