The traffic in big cities in India is getting busier day by day. There are thousands of motor vehicles running on the roads of the country. Every person is in a hurry to reach their destination but the traffic is a big challenge. The huge number of motor vehicles on the roads causes the traffic to grow and get slower simultaneously. But these alone are not responsible for slowing down the traffic.
The lack of wider roads, old and unwanted infrastructure and many more reasons are there that cause the traffic problems on a daily basis in different parts of the country.
