 Tackling Traffic Congestion
Policy-makers employ a wide range of measures to tackle the problem of traffic congestion. Enforcement schemes such as setting strict speed limits on major roads and the use of congestion charges in city centres are two such examples as are vehicle exclusion zones or parking restrictions in busy pedestrian areas. However, it also makes sense to encourage motorists to become less reliant on their car. This can be achieved by making public transport more efficient and promoting the benefits of car-sharing with work colleagues, thus reducing weekly fuel bills. And the increasing number of cycle lanes on many roads is further evidence of how to win the hearts and minds of motorists in the fight against congestion
.The Joy of Motoring
Recent research into the attitudes of motorists shows we are still more than happy to get behind the wheel. Despite rising fuel costs, insurance premiums and frequent traffic jams, 9 out of 10 of us still enjoy driving. Whether it’s visiting friends and relations, taking the family for a day out or even commuting to work, the car remains first choice for many people. Experts argue that unlike public transport, the car leaves us in charge of our own destiny, giving us the freedom to travel when and where we want. The car also gives us the opportunity to express ourselves. The kind of vehicle we drive tells the world something about who we are or what we aspire to be. Cars are not simply a means of transport but also something we wear.

Essay on Motoring and Traffic Congestion

The need of motor vehicles in the modern world is undeniable. But although the benefits of owning a four-wheeled transportation device are numerous, cars can also generate a lot of problems.

On the one hand automobils are absolutely necessary for some people. For instance, in the USA, everybody needs a car to go to school or to go to the office. With public transport being slow or simply non-existent, having a car gives people a transport solution. Furthermore, travelling by car also helps people avoid stressful situations. Owning a car means no more standing in crowded buses or fighting with people in the subway.

Essay on the role of computers

As far as I am concerned, Both texts are dealing deal with the place role of computers in the life of modern people. However, each of them expresses a different opinion.

The first text claims that computers are the most ingenious invention of all times. It says states that information from all over the world has become widely used and available for any user. From my point of view, it is one of the most valuable advantages for professionals. For example, computers make it possible for businessmen to establish interstate and international relationships. This has a favourable impact on the state of the economy of the country.

Essay on Advertising

In the following paragraphs, I will summarise and evaluate two texts related to advertising. While both authors address its evolution in the digital era, one focuses on the excitement of the business while the other criticises it.   

On the one hand, outdoor advertising has always been the means to reach potential consumers. With the evolution of technology, digital media has taken over and made advertising an affordable opportunity to call potential customers’ attention, entertain them, and keep them informed. Huge digital plasma screens and billboards are now the key element for advertisers to creatively persuade customers in a lively brightening environment.
