The government needs to reduce the amount of traffic on its roads, There are various ways to do it: have lower quotas on vehicle importation, high registration fees for new vehicles, set up vehicle exclusion zones, even/odd day vehicle use, reduce amount of vehicles per household, higher insurance premiums for urban household vehicles, free public transportion in high population density areas, reduce parking areas, tow all illegal parkers, remove junkers, fine unlicensed operators, & need I go on?
