Brief about Solution
1. When travelling around town, jump on a bus or train instead of in your car. Taking mass transit can be faster, cheaper, and more relaxing. It also helps minimize environmental damage caused by excessive car use. 2. 2 Try Active Transportation. Active transportation (walking, jogging, roller blading, riding a bicycle, etc.) is another great way of reducing congestion. Active transportation takes cars off roads and is the most cost effective means of transportation Take Mass Transit. The best way to avoid contributing to traffic congestion is to take mass transit. for short distances. This is also an easy way to improve your health, cut your gas bill and save the environment. o If you ride in the street, don't obstruct or confuse motorized traffic needlessly. Stay to the slow side of the road as long as it's safe and practical. Signal your turns. 3. 3 Combine Active Transportation and Mass Transit. If your destination is too far away for active transportation or mass transit alone, combine the two to increase your commuting range allowing you to ride to and from the transit stops nearest your destination. Many mass transit systems are designed with cyclists in mind with racks on the fronts of buses, bike lockers at major stops, or even entire train cars designated for bicycle storage during travel. Check and see what options are available for combining active transportation and mass transit in your area! 4. 4 Pay attention. Sounds obvious, but most drivers are zoned out in their own little worlds, paying little attention to what's going on, even a car-length or two ahead of them. Start making an active effort to stay alert by scanning ahead as far as you can see. Your peripheral vision will take care of what isn't directly ahead of you. Watch for slowing ahead for road hazards and for accidents or other problems at the road side. Anticipate slowdowns and back off or downshift even if you are driving an automatic. Don't be a brake tapper on the freeway. It can cause a ripple effect for miles. If you see a road hazard, such as debris in the road, call your local law enforcement agency through a non emergency line and report the hazard. The sooner someone reports a problem, the less impact it will have on the commute.
