Today's Writing Assignment: "Congestion"

Hello Students: One of the new words we learned, yesterday, is congestion.
read the question, below, and post your answer to this blog by clicking on the "comment" button, below, on the right side of this post.

The question:
Do you have a suggestion for reducing traffic congestion, in Kuwait? (If you are a non-Kuwaiti student, you could provide a suggestion that is suitable for your own country on the same problem).

Notice that your answer should be in the form of a short paragraph,a 3-sentence paragraph, including a topic sentence, one supporting point sentence, and one supporting detail sentence,i.e one example on how your suggestion can solve such a problem.

Thank you,

Buthaina Al Othman

    Life in cities is sometimes very boring. The Traffic is so bad that is quicker to walk then to go by bus or car. So my soggestions are :

    - Why there is no train in Kuwait to use it to go from an area to another ?

    - Why don`t we use bicycles instead of cars ?

    - People can go to work at different time every day.

    - There must be more one-way streets.

    if there is a group of people who word togother in the same place and they go to the same place everyday like(students to schools and universities ,workers to their company or where they work so
    why donot we use buses for transportation from one place to another ?
    how about putting buses for the universities to transfer people?
    what about using internt for students workers and all the people to do their work without going to the company or the university ?
    why donot we reduce the working hours for the workers that let them go earlier to their home ?
    why donot we differentiate betweem working hours for students and the ministries work?

    in kuwait every block has at least four schools and not too far from students houses i suggest that they sould walk to their schools or use bicycles instead.Definitely it will reduce the traffic congestion.

    there are many ways to reduce traffic conguestion. one of these ways is to use manual transportations for shorter trips like ridding a bike or walking. last and the most important is to use one vehicle for one family trip rather than using two or more vehicles like for example big families uses a van rather than using two cars.

    Suggestions to Reduce Traffic Congestion in Kuwait, by Hala

    In my opinion,traffic congestion is a big problem which we suffer from it nowadays and we should find different solutions to solve it.if there is a group of of people who are working togother in the same place ,that helps us to use buses for their transportation .therefore,the congestion in the streets will be less because less number of cars are used and that leads us to less pollution.for example,using buses to transport students to their univesities or
    schools,workers to their place of work.
