I read your article about traffic three days ago. I could not agree more with you. Traffic is, indeed, one of the biggest problems modern cities face, nowadays.
Unfortunately, mothers and fathers picking up their children are not the only ones causing problems. The main problem is the number of cars each family uses. Some families may even have three cars. Another problem is that people are getting lazier and lazier, so they use their cars more that they use their feet.
However, the council and the citizens could do something to reduce traffic. For example, we could use our bikes more. Many countries in Europe have already tried to encourage people to use their bikes and they were successful. Another good idea is to reduce the price of public transport, so that more people use it.
I think we must all try to reduce traffic.
