CPE 2017 Have your writing corrected
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.
On the other hand, all those cars in the streets mean facing traffic jams and of course pollution. They create congestion and are one of the principal sources of contamination in the cities. As a respond to this situation, governments are implementing a series of strategies to motivate people not to use their cars so often.
Some of these government strategies involve car sharing and using bikes, while others fine drivers who use their vehicles on certain days or at certain times; but this strategy does not seem to be so efficent. Probably because doing something to avoid a fine, does not involve really understading the nature of the problem.
All in all, I am of the opinion that cars are indispensable in the current lifestyles and living standards. We cannot disregard the impact they had on facilitating our existance, nevertheless it is irrefutable that their numbers have reached levels where we must not hasitate to act in downsizing them.
