The question is why did the authorities not make any plans to tackle the situation before the beginning of the academic year?

The traffic jam in the past three days reflected the need for comprehensive solutions to the problem, and such solutions should not be temporary.

We are in favour of each company providing mass transport for its employees, instead of people using their own cars to get to work. Such a solution will be very effective in reducing the number of cars on the roads.

Therefore, we call upon the authorities to seriously take note of this suggestion to ease the problems of commuters.
