Nowadays the world is more and more convinient because we can easily go to wherever we like by using transportation network. There may be some people who state the governments spend more money on improving roads and highways, whereas others on improving public transportation. In my opinion, the government have to spend more money on improving public transportation. I have three reasons to support my view.
First, the incidents related to public transportation may kill many people. Several years ago, a train which brought a lot of passangers in it turned over and killed many of them. It is said that the main cause for that was to save the cost to maintain its safty. So the government should spend more money to keep the public transportation safe because nothing is more precious than the human lives.
Second, the public transportation is usually too crowded to utilize in the morning. I live in Japan for several years and it is famous that trains are extremely crowded in the morning in Japan. It makes us tired just before we start working. There are some countries which are in the same situation and the governments should improve our working environment.
In summary, I suggest that the governments spend more money on improving public transportation because they have to keep it safe and make our working environment easy.Read more
