Traffic Control Measures

The Beijing municipal government has passed a new law that limits the number of new car license plates to be issued in 2011. Here’s the news link: http://www.thehindu.com/news/international/article1023254.ece

It is too harsh a measure to curb traffic problems. It is retrograde and highly punitive in nature for those economically backward people who, after years of hard work, have finally arrived at a position to own a car. With it, their dream might remain dream forever. The measure is bound to create a permanent divide between haves and have-nots.

Some forward-looking measures might be:

  • making carpool mandatory for regular one-route travellers
  • encouraging increased use of public transport through special concessions to regular users
  • making cycles available on rent for small-distance travellers
  • improving the transport infra-structure, wherever possible
  • building double-decker, or perhaps, ‘triple-decker’ roads in addition to multi-storeyed parking lots
