There are many people using trains than
cars these days and they argue that governments should spend money on railways
rather than roads. Even though developing roads is also essential in that many
car drivers suffer from traffic jam, I agree more on spending money on railways
rather than roads for several reasons.
Trains can be used by wider range of people while only those who hold driver's
license or own a car can drive a car. For example, people aged under 20 cannot
drive in many countries. Therefore, when they want to travel to other side of
their country or visit their relatives in different region without someone
else's help, train is the fastest and easiest way for them. And this is from my
personal experience. When I was in high school, I lived in different region
where 300 kilometers away from my family. Without taking a train I would not have
been able to visit my family every weekend easily.
reason is that it can reduce traffic jam. If governments spend money on
railways and develop it, more people will take a train rather than driving a
car. Driving a car takes a lot of car such as paying for gas, insurance, yearly
check up, and traffic jam must be the most irritating problem of all. If
railways are developed more, those who used to drive can take a train and do
not have to suffer from these problems anymore. Furthermore, it is also better
for those who still want to drive since there would be less cars on the road,
which will lead to less traffic jam.
understand that spending money roads can be necessary for drivers but if
governments spend money on railways, it can satisfy both train users and car
drivers. Therefore, I agree that governments should spend money on railways
rather than roads.
