Thousand litters of gasoline are wasted every day. This is caused by severe traffic jam which is getting more common in our city today. Every morning from 7 to 9 and 4 to 6 in the afternoon our roads are filled with packs of car and motorcycles. Consequently, the traffic is hard terrible. It takes hours just to move for one to two kilometers. Traffic jams is not only a matter of time, how many hours people spend to get to their work place or home, but also a matter of unnecessary consumption of our renewable natural resource, the oil. Because traffic jams, people get many troubles, for example late to their school or work. To solve the problems, I think that government should make a new rule, new way, and new change.

The first rule is different transportation different road. Government should make 3 roads. One road for public transportation, one for individual vehicle, and one for motorcycle. And people who break this law must get a punishment. The punishment is fine and it can be from police, but government should make the fine higher. For example, the fine is IDR 500k to 1000k. So, with higher fine it will make people do the role and not try to break the law.

The second solve is government must make public want to go by public transportation. In fact, now, the payment of public transportation still high. Furthermore the sum of public transportation with good condition just a little. It makes people rethink to take public transportation. The government can change it by make the payment for public transportation lower. Besides that, the government must to supply more public transportation. In addition, the public transportation with good condition. If the government has done it and give the best public transportation with the best service, public will take public transportation for their transportation.

A change for working hours can solve the traffic jam too. In fact, the mostly time traffic jam happened is in every morning from 7 to 9, because in that time students have to go to school and workers have to go their work place. In my opinion, if the government sets the regulation that schools start at 6 in the morning and finishes at 3 in the afternoon. However, the regulation for worker is start at 8 in the morning and finishes at 5 in the afternoon. So, with the different time between students and worker, it can help to makes our road not filled and traffic jam not happened.

Traffic jams which are getting more and more serious make many problems. Not only for students, but also for the workers too. It makes government to take a hand to this problem. The government should make a new rule, new way, and new change. A new rule that is different road different transportation. A new way that is government must motivated and make public to take public transportation as their daily transportation. A change, government has to change for working hours and regulation hour for school. Besides that, public have to participation to the government’s ways to break the traffic jams.
