Life in a big city now-a-days has become very difficult and complicated. A big city offers us many social, social, economic and political problems which make our life very hard and tough. The first problem which we come across in a big city is uncontrolled growth of population. This has generated the traffic problem. The traffic problem in a big city has gone beyond proportion. The traffic jams in a big city are a daily occurrence.

Traffic jams make the march of slow and unsteady. Men and women going to their place of work are at once halted. They do not reach their office in time. The children are delayed to reach the school. The patients do not get medical aid in time. They have to stop on the way. Sometimes, the traffic is jammed for hours together. The small babies in the laps of their mother cry for milk, but they do not get it.

The traffic jams also leave psychologist effect on our mind. The passengers delayed due to traffic jams feel frustrated and angry. They blow out their horns out of their out of frustration. The sense of loss continuously hangs on their head. The delayed performance of work or duty may bring to them untold misery or loss Traffic jams in the modern age reflect an ugly of science and technology, such jams cannot be favored by any body. They are a denial to the cultural growth of a city.

Reasons for creation of Traffic Jams in A Big City:

The first reason for the creation of traffic jams is the unchecked growth of population.

The population in a big city is increasing very rapidly. people from the village come to settle in the cities. Our villages do not offer them the facilities and comforts of daily life. They come to the big cities in search of jobs and modern facilities of life. This thing has increased the bulk of traffic on the roads.

Secondly: the roads of the cities are narrow and uneven, They are not in a good position. They cannot withstand the pressure of traffic. As the result of traffic jams, the flow of traffic is halted.

Thirdly: The traffic is controlled and put under heavy control when a V.I.P or President or Prime Minister comes to the city. The road is fully banned for the flow of traffic from where the V.I.P has to pass. Another route is re-directed for traffic. They heavy flow of traffic creates jams.

Fourthly: The slow vehicles marching a head of the motorcars sometime put up resistance in the smooth flow of traffic.

Measures to control traffic:

We can control the traffic jams by adopting the following measures.

  • The rapid increase of population should be stopped by taking different steps. The villages should be urbanized. The migration of the villagers to the cities should be discouraged.
  • The traffic police must be made alert and vigilant.
  • The roads should not be reserved for the V.I.P,s. They should visit The big cities as an ordinary citizen.
