Traffic jam is a problem which has always been in existence especially in the urban areas due to the large number of population and the limited number of roads in those areas. This is a problem which has not found any solutions yet despite the development of systems which try to solve this problem such as the use of traffic lights systems (ZHENG, GAO, ZHAO & FU, 2008).


Question one: Can the issue of traffic jams be reduced?
Traffic jams can be reduced in one way or the other as long as the best ideas are incorporated into one and a solution generated.

Questions two: What new ways can be used in solving the issues of traffic jam?
There is a wide variety of ways with others still emerging on how the issue of traffic jam can be solved.
