What happens when there is an increased use of motor vehicles ?
 
An increased use of motor vehicles indicates an increased development and prosperity in the country. Consumers and companies would have an increased preference to buy and use these vehicles because of increased incomes or profits. Consumers want the increased mobility and convenience that cars can bring, while businesses need vehicles to deliver goods, services and clients.

However, with increased vehicles comes attendant problems. The first and most visible effect will be clogged streets with traffic jams. Unless the government moves quickly, the infrastructure will not be able to cope with the increased number of vehicles on the roads. There will be a need for more roads, highways, traffic policemen and controls like traffic lights.

Traffic jams will negate the very mobility which vehicles are supposed to provide. There will be decreased productivity in the form of wasted hours of people waiting in stalled vehicles. People will have to leave for work or school earlier and come home later. There will also be the psychological impact of citizens' frustration over traffic jams, and air and noise pollution. Politicians and authorities would have to consider remedial measures like improved transport systems such as the light rail system.

With the increase use of vehicles, there will also be the problem of air pollution. Vehicles emitting fumes and waste products will foul up the atmosphere. Large cities like Mexico City and Los Angeles sometimes have a permanent smog in the air. Oxygen levels will decrease. In Tokyo, citizens to buy and use oxygen masks. Traffic policemen in Mexico and Bangkok wear face masks to protect their lungs. Increasing chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) emitted pierce the ozone layer which, in turn, create the greenhouse effect and cause innumerable problems to the world's environment.

Governments have recognized this and taken measures to restrict the growth of vehicles which hamper the very economic growth which they were supposed to engender. Restricted traffic zones and controlled vehicle licenses are some of the measures which the authorities have undertaken. All these measures are implemented in our country which implements to ensure a smoother traffic flow and cleaner atmosphere.

On the plus side for increased traffic growth, governments have benefited from the revenue derived from taxes on motor vehicles. Foreign countries which export vehicles see the automobile industry as a vital engine of growth. Sometimes, however, the very foreigners who export these vehicles to the countries may not be fond of visiting their capital cities. An example is Bangkok, where tourists and businessmen are deterred from visiting because of the massive traffic jams. Thus, these are some consequences of increased use of motor vehicles.
