My country, The Philippines, has one of the worst traffic problems in the whole world. The government has proposed a variety of projects that target to ease the congestion in the traffic-stricken cities of the country. Some of them cause d a very little improvement that I can say is not enough, the others did not work at all or did not even push through. Today, the authority is planning to phase out the infamous JEEPNEY of the Philippines which is a primary mode of transportation of Filipino commuters all throughout the country. Jeepneys that have been on the road for 15 years or more are subject for phasing out or permanent prohibition to operate for health and safety reasons. However, they will be replaced by modernized and eco-friendly counterpart which will be called Eco Philippine Utility Vehicle. The new jeepneys will have CCTV cameras, Wifi, global positioning system (GPS) and automated fare collection or beep cards for the payment of fares. That being said, it is likely to be one of the Philippines' future of public transportations. Now let us go back to the real issue, will this lessen the traffic? The phasing out of the old jeepneys is for the health and safety of the people. When talking about health, we can connect that with the smoke-belching vehicles that worsen the air pollution. Air pollution greatly affects the people's health because of the harmful airborne chemicals that damages the respiratory system and more but it does not cause traffic. Let us now focus on the SAFETY side. Of course, old jeepneys (and any other vehicles) are more prone to accidents. Old brakes, wheels and other parts may contribute to accidents that can be fatal and cost lives. These collisions happen on the road which may block the road and cause TRAFFIC. If the government phases out all this old malfunctioning vehicles, it may perhaps lessen, even a tiny but a visible bit the traffic in the country. I have heard rumors about the idea of establishing subways in the Philippines. If this is true, then it may improve that condition of traffic in the cities and may encourage citizens to utilize public transportation instead of purchasing a private vehicle which could add up to the volume of vehicles on the road. I can see the future with subways, eco-friendly jeepneys, cable cars and bullet trains but the possibility of turning these into reality does not rely only on the funds and technologies but also with the most essential connection I can think of-- the connection between INNOVATION and DISCIPLINE. It is a fact that being innovative is one way to fix the problem but it can only offer a short-term solution. What our country needs is a congestion-free road that gets better and better in the long run and it is feasible by means of instilling in our own minds the discipline to follow rules and laws. So, to all people of the Philippines, let us strive to be a better version of ourselves. Let us be mindful of our surroundings, be sensitive and be good citizens and be obedient to laws and rules. To all the parents, encourage your children to be creative, smart and innovative. Show them what they can do to improve the world specifically the modes of transportation and never forget to instill in their young minds obedience, good manners, sensitivity, respect and genuine concern for the country and the discipline so that they will continue to aid in the betterment of the transportation in the country and finally resolve the traffic problem forever.
