As everyone knows, the traffic problem in our city is becoming more and more serious , especially during the rush hours.

It’s high time that the city government took some effective measures to solve the problem. Firstly, many roads need to build overpasses so as to cut down traffic jams .Besides, the number of private cars must be strictly controlled.
As long as we take the above measures , I’m sure

accidents will be controlled. And I do hope our
government will accept my suggestions. Yours, Li Hua
