There are clear patterns in traffic movement. There are ‘rush hours’ in the morning @ 8-9 and in the evening @ 5-6. This is because it is at these times when most working people are travelling to or from work.
Traffic congestion can be reduced by restricting the amount of private cars in the inner city. This can be achieved by-
- Improved public transport (Buses, railways, trams etc)
- Building underground railway systems
- Ring roads and motorways around the city
- Other traffic solutions e.g. One way systems etc
