Sustainable Transportation


The world’s population continues to grow, and the people are interested in different needs to have their lives healthy and happy (Harry & Ralph, 2011). For instance, most of the families staying with aged parents regards car as a necessity to transport the aged parent to various occasions or medical appointment. In addition, majority people use car as a mode of transport that cause series of problems on our environment. The paper will discuss the various strategies that should be used in developing countries to prevent such problems in the future.


Since the population in developing countries continues to rise, the number of cars on the road is also expected to grow (Miller & Scott, 2010). As a result, it will expose these countries to the risk of air pollution, growing greenhouse gas emission, as well as congestion on the roads. This might be witnessed as the growing population of cars will produce large amount of carbon dioxide emitted to the atmosphere leading to global warming. Therefore, it is important to think of more sustainable form of transportation. One potential solution is through car-sharing scheme in transportation that reduces the number of cars on the roads (Peter, Linda & David, 2012). By introducing this method, it will give people an opportunity to travel around as they need, as well as maintain a clean environment. That is, through the car-sharing scheme, different developing countries will reduce cars on their roads resulting to less congestion, less dependence on oil, less pollution and thus have cleaner air to breath.


Therefore, by learning from most of these developed nations, developing countries should not ignore the effects that cars have to health and environment. Environment should be priority and make it clean as possible.
