With the rapid
development of Chinese economic and the improvement of living standards of
ordinary people, more and more private cars are on road. Some people think
private cars can bring great convenience to the owners while others argue that
government should put a limit on private cars. In my humble opinion, we should
put a limit on private cars.
First of all, the
more private cars, the more traffic jams. If people stuck on a traffic jam, it
will cost them a lot of time, some people even late for work. What’s more,
nowadays finding a parking spot is much harder than before because there are
too many cars on streets. Sometimes you just arrive at the destination, but you
just cannot find a place to park your car. The place is so crowded that you
have to park in other place which may be far away from your destination.
price of gasoline and repairs are constantly rising, not to mention the prices
for the insurance and the fear of being stolen. If you do not make enough
money, you can barely pay for the fees of the cars. This can cause great burden
to your daily life.
Last but not
least, the cars produce tens of thousands of carbon dioxide, which will create
greenhouse effect and other serious environmental pollution. Some
environmentalists predict that in the next few years, the ozone layer will
fully disappear and will increase the rate of getting skin cancer. And the air
we breathe in is not as pure as before, do we really need to sacrifice our
future to enjoy the so called convenience?
Due to these
reason, I think people should think twice before they buy a private car. We
should not only consider the increasing cost of owning a car, but also should
think about the future we have. It’s not only a personal thing, but also the
whole country, the whole world.
