Traffic Jam

...Introduction: Communication is an important aspect of our day-to-day life. And as such, the bad effect of traffic jam can better be understood than described. So movements on the roads and streets must strictly be regulated by certain rules, which we call traffic rules. Vehicles must keep to the left, obey speed limits and should avoid overtaking and follow the traffic signals. If these rules are followed strictly, the vehicles can go on smoothly without causing any traffic jam. But most often than not, there is glaring carelessness about these rules. As a result, the common people pay very dearly for it. People lose their time on their way for nothing. Sometimes we feel inclined to think that our government and the people at the helm of these affairs are very indifferent to such vital problems. Something positive must be done to relieve the people from such problems. Traffic congestion is a condition on road networks that occurs as use increases, and is characterized by slower speeds, longer trip times, and increased vehicular queuing. The most common example is the physical use of roads by vehicles. When traffic demand is great enough that the interaction between vehicles slows the speed of the traffic stream, congestion is incurred. As demand approaches the capacity of a road (or of the intersections along the road), extreme traffic congestion sets in. When vehicles are fully stopped for periods of time, this is colloquially known as a traffic jam. Consequences of...

Traffic Jam of Bangladesh

...The Traffic Jam and Snug, established 1965, is truly one of Detroit's hidden treasures. Known throughout Midtown for our in-house bakery, microbrewery, and dairy, our curiously intimate multi-level dining rooms, and an eclectic menu of made-from-scratch dishes, there is simply nothing quite like The Traffic Jam. We only use the best, freshest ingredients. We know this because we make everything ourselves. Each day, our bakery turns out a new Bread of the Day, from authentic ethnic crusted rolls and vegetable breads to whole grain sourdoughs and cheese loaves. In fact, head baker Pete Waldenmeyer stopped keeping records of recipes years ago. A shamefully delicious selection of pies, cakes, and cookies are made here too, not to mention our very own hot fudge and ice cream. Our award-winning cheeses and beers are a local favorite. We actually use the same equipment for brewing beer and making cheese, and we encourage you to witness this unique process from our observation balcony. One popular lunchtime choice is our cheese platter, consisting of three of our finest cheeses, served with premium crackers, fresh berries, and house-made honey dijon mustard. On December 18, 1992, after a decade-long legal battle, the Traffic Jam became the first brew-pub in the state of Michigan. Since then, we have been brewing an uncommon, ever-changing selection of hand-crafted beers. Take, for example, the Grand Theft Pilsner, or the Java Porter. Available in 14 or 22 oz. pours, or try......

Traffic Jam

...Beginning Men have stepped on the moon. Now they are going from one place to another within few hours. World fastest car is able to sprint 252mph, but the citizens of Dhaka (sometimes) cannot reach few miles to Gulistan from Mohakhali or any other place to our destination place within hours. You must go out from your house before two or three hours to reach destination which is only 20 or 30 minutes required. Who is responsible for this? Traffic jam is that magician. Traffic jam has become a great monster in our modern life. Traffic congestion is not only affecting our business but the education sector as well. Students cannot do other tasks such as photocopying or collecting notes before attending class in the morning because a lot of time gets wasted on traffic congestions. It wastes lot of working hours of students as well as teachers. In many occasions, students and teachers fail to attend classes in due time. And it is more painful when students fail to reach exam halls and fails just due to a social problem. Now just think everyday how much national time is wasting, how much economical activities are losing, for the traffic congestion problem. This assignment is focusing current situation of traffic congestion problem in Dhaka city. What is Traffic jam? A traffic jam is a long line of vehicles that cannot move forward because there is too much traffic, or because the road is blocked by something. Over the last few years the traffic congestion problem of Dhaka City has...

Traffic Jam

...With increasingly rapid economic globalization and urbanization,more problems are brought to our attention.One of them is traffic jams. The reasons can be listed as follows .For one thing,it’s cheaper to buy a car than IT WAS a few years ago.In previous years,a car was a luxury that Chinese families COULD NOT afford,but cars are now becoming more accessible to the common people because of the reduction IN the price.Therefore we can see VERY many cars driving on the road. For another reason,with people’s needs for transport facilities increasing substantially , the road network is far from rational. Stimulated by high demand , the number of private cars has increased at an average annual rate of over 30 per cent . Therefore , restrictING road BUILDING can’t meet the requirement of the INCREASING NUMBER OF cars. Although traffic jams haVE brought inconvenience to us, it seems that people are not prepared to give up their cars and use other forms of transport. Here are a variety of reasons for it. First,owning a car is a metaphor of one’s status. Generally, a man who haS a car may be richer than a man who goes by bus. SecondLY A car is FATER compared with A bus or bicycle. In a survey conducted by a well-known magazine, it takes us one hour to go to your destination by bus. While you may save half an hour if you have a car. Then,how should we solve this problem? Here are some suggestions,which may be of some help. One way is to call upon common people to use A......

Traffic Jam in Dhaka City

...Traffic Jam in Dhaka City Over the last few years the transportation problem of Dhaka City has visibly been deteriorating steadily. Citizens constantly complain about the unbearable twin problems of traffic jam and air pollution. Democracy watch decided to address this problem through an opinion poll covering around eight hundred households randomly selected from several purposively selected neighbourhoods of the city, representatives of middle and lower income areas. The questions asked focused mainly on three issues: (a) the nature of the problem as perceived by the surveyed residents, (b) their understanding about the causes of these problems and (c) their recommendations on solutions to these perceived problems. Some preliminary results from this survey were presented at a workshop, which was   participated by persons associated with the formulation and implementation of traffic policies, rules and programmes .This Draft Final Report benefits from valuable discussion and comments received at the workshop. The methodology of this survey is explained below in brief. It is easy to see that the study extended beyond a standard opinion poll and entered the arena of investigative research in seeking some explanations to perceptions as well as behaviour. The findings are presented mainly in the form of self-explanatory tables with some introductory highlights and conclusions. A further extension of the survey is currently being completed to cover the very poor and...

...Traffic has always been a problem when driving in a big city. There are many improvements that can be done to fix or lessen the amount of traffic throughout a city. Such things as wider roads (i.e. super highways), monorails, and even for some to re-take their driving tests. The use of monorails within a city as a means of public transportation would be a great way to get from point A to point B, without having to use a personal vehicle and therefore decreasing the amount of vehicles on the road. A downside to using a monorail is the cost. Currently the Bombardier MVI that is being used in Las Vegas, NV, costs $88 million per mile. Expensive yet effective. This would help cut down on the amount of stop and go traffic. Another helpful agenda that would reduce the flow of stop and go traffic is if each state were to issue a bill, stating that a driver after a certain age must retake their driving test. As stated by Moore, Peter in Front Page and Life, “Most Americans think that 75-year olds should have to re-sit their driving tests in order to keep on driving, while people also it’s about as difficult as it should be to get a license in the first place.” Can you think back to a time where you were on your way to say either a doctor’s appointment or running a tad bit late for work and you happen to get stuck behind a slow moving elderly person that clearly wasn’t even driving the speed limit? Having a set age limit by each state for the elderly to retake their driving test...

Traffic Jam in Bangladesh

...Shafiq, a new graduate student who is supposed to enter the new workforce is stucked in a traffic jam. Tension grew up in his mind because he has to attened an interview. Shafiq is not sure whether he would reach in time. Shafiq incident is not any exception in our country. Traffic jam is a big problem in Bangladesh. Improper road construction, breaking traffic rules are the two causes of traffic jam, which results in various severe problems in our life. The first reason of traffic jam, and in my opinion the most important, is improper road construction. The existing highways, roads and streets are slender and narrow. The roads are not constructed under standard and proper planning. One-way traffic system is not in every places where it is badly needed. In some cases, the roads are so damaged that it can be hardly understood whether it is a road or a pool. Moreover, when the authority repair the damage rods, it also creates a problem to the traffic system. For instance, most of the time the authority chooose the Rainy season for repairing the damaged roads. In Rainy season, traffic jam normally occurs frequently than other times and repairing the roads in this time make the situation worst. For all of these reasons, lack of proper road construction is one of the main reasons behind traffic jam. In addition, breaking the traffic rules is another cause of traffic jam. In big cities, lots of rickshaw-puller pull their rickshaws on the roads and streets. As most of the...

...Traffic is Fatal In the middle of Iglesia ni Cristo’s controversial rally along EDSA last week, one netizen tweeted about how his friend’s mother died because the ambulance cannot get through the heavy traffic on EDSA. This incident started when Jim Paredes tweeted: “If anyone dies in this traffic right now, or an ambulance can’t make it to the hospital, who will answer? Does anyone care?” Sadly, one netizen which is named as @badet_cardona on twitter replied and managed to make Paredes’ tweet to be reality. It was said that his mom’s friend, died at a hospital along Reliance EDSA. Supposedly, it will only take 15 minutes to go there but it took them 1 hour and 27 minutes to reach the hospital. They had to endure the mass rally that Iglesia ni Cristo was doing. And in order to just make it to the hospital, they had to ask favor to the rallyists to at least let them pass through but one woman from the rally replied, “So what?” This response made them so shocked and disappointed for someone who has a religion who strongly believes in God’s teaching and practices them. They also said that they do respect what INC is fighting for but they do have to consider what others are going through as well. In line with this, CNN Philippines also reported that emergency medical service have turned down over 50 requests for ambulances when it has to pass through EDSA. It was estimated that six people died in the past five days of INC rally. All of these tragedies is......

Trade is needed because of “efficient resource allocation”. The entire nation has the main goal to increase GDP or per capita income because to increase “standard of living”. It only can possible with the proper use of resources. Income or output increased by the proper use of resources. So the differences between nation’s resources are the main source of trade. By Richardian model we can know that comparative advantage only can happen because of international differences in labor productivity. But in real world we can see that international differences between resources are the main source of trade. This is explained by Swedish economist Eli Heckscher and Bertil ohlin.This model shows that by the interaction between nation resources (the relative...

One of the reasons which cause traffic jam is vehicles increasing during New Year season. Many people will go back to their hometown during New Year season like Hari Raya Puasa Aidilfitri, Chinese New Year, Deepavali, Christmas and so on. Many people will like to travel by their own car rather than take public transportations. This is because people will think that if they take public transportations, they will feel uncomfortable.

...The mega city of Dhaka cannot afford the burden of 140 million people on its 360 kilometers of land. The concentrated populated itself poses a potential threat. The high-rise buildings, continuously rising industries, increasing number of transports and growing slums continue aggravating the situation. 60 percent of her citizens live beyond the city facilities in spite of their living in the ambit of the city. They throng to the city just to earn their living. Driven by extreme poverty, insecurity, river erosion, serious unemployment problem have sent them to this city. Quickly this situation cannot be changed. Environmentalists have expressed concern that the encroachment on the river Buriganga, the life line of Dhaka city, traffic congestion, pollution and diseases are turning this once majestic city into a choking hell. About fifty percent of the river's pollution load comes from the industrial source while sewerage and domestic wastes contribute to the remaining fifty percent. Between 1980-2009 the population of Dhaka has swelled from three million to more than ten million and its importance has increased manifold but the basic amenities have not kept up with the changes.. Water from the river Buriganga and Shitalakhya that would have supplemented the need of drinking water and other purposes such as cooking and washing has been fouled as much by raw sewerage as by a number of industrial and chemical units and even pesticides. Traffic jam stands as the number one...

Traffic Jam in Bangladesh

...What is Traffic jam? A traffic jam is a long line of vehicles that cannot move forward because there is too much traffic, or because the road is blocked by something. The major factor behind traffic Jam in Bangladesh: There are many reasons behind traffic jam in Bangladesh. Among them some major factors are as follows:     ➢ Undisciplined traffic signal in the road.     ➢ Indiscipline among the road user.     ➢ Might is right, everybody are free to park their vehicle on Road.     ➢ No knowledge of traffic rules which encourage violating the rules.     ➢ Enforcement of rules by dishonest persons who are busy in collection of illegal money from traffic rules violators.     ➢ Heavy numbers of vehicle on roads. ] When the government as well as traffic department of Bangladesh Police are continuously trying to resolve the ever increasing traffic congestions in the capital city in Bangladesh, owners of Multi Storied Buildings [MSB] are continuing to further worsen the situation as most of them do not either have under-ground vehicle parking facilities in their buildings, or have already used the under-ground parking spaces for various commercial and industrial purposes. Just because of such illegal practices by the owners of such multi storied commercial and residential buildings, vehicles are parked on road sides, causing extra burden to the existing traffic congestions. On physical verification, Weekly Blitz has already located a number of multi storied...
