Chuck cars and opt for public transport means - Yahoo Maktoob News: "One of the best ways to reduce the risk of road accidents is to completely shift the preference of people using cars/ private vehicles to public transport, which is a ‘relatively' safer mode of transport.
"Car travel must be made expensive. There are several ways that private firms and authorities can work together to encourage people to use public transport," Tawab Kazemi, Technical Director at Transport Research Laboratory, told Khaleej Times on the sidelines of the Gulf Traffic Exhibition and Conference, which opened on Monday.
"The need of driving should be eradicated. Simple cooperative measures between companies and the transport authorities can fix this problem.""
