The Causes of Traffic Jams in Beijing


The Causes of Traffic Jams in Beijing
11 级 4 班 曲治颖 2011411074 As the capital of China, Beijing is one of the big cities which suffer from heavy traffic jams. The citizens spend several hours on the roads every day. The causes of such phenomenon can be listed as follows. The increase of private cars in Beijing is a main cause. Nowadays, with people’s living standard improving a lot, almost every family has at least one car. on the one hand, in many residence communities, there is not enough parking space for such large amount of private cars. Therefore, car owners have to park cars on the sideways, which makes streets more narrow; on the other hand, most of the citizens want to enjoy the convenience of driving out, they tend to drive to work instead of taking subways or buses. Thousands of private cars rushing on the street leads to heavy traffic jams. The unreasonable city construction of Beijing is another cause. Its construction is five ring roads surrounding a center. Most citizens live in suburban district and work in the downtown. During the weekdays from 7-9 am, citizens crowd to downtown from outside circles to the center, while at 6-8 pm, people swarm back home from the center to outside circles. It’s not an uncommon to see one side of the roads are crowded with cars or buses, while the other side is quite empty in rush hours. Laking main streets is also a cause of traffic jams. In order to protect the Forbidden City and Ti’an Men or other historical resorts which are located in the second Ring Road, urban planners didn’t build main roads in the Second Ring. That lead to cars going to the downtown are crowded in narrow streets, which aggravates the traffic jams. People’s unwillingness of using public transportations partly gives rise to the traffic jams. Though Beijing government has taken measures to restrict people from driving private cars. Some citizens are not willing to being squeezed in subways, because taking subways in rush hours usually means not finding a seat and standing for few hours. So if weather permitting, they choose to drive out. Though Beijing is still suffering from heavy traffic jams, with effective measures and more people choosing public transportations, this problem will be solved one day.
