ĐỀ THI NGÀY 25-3-2017

The best way to solve world’s traffic and environmental problems is increase the cost of fuel.

Do you agree or disagree and give your own opinion?

Topic analysis

In your essay, you need to state whether you agree or disagree that an increase in fuel costs would best solve problems of traffic and the environment. In addition to that, you need to present your opinion about any alternatives that could tackle those problems.

Outline

Band 8 Sample

It is believed that traffic and pollution issues would be best tackled by higher prices of gas. In my opinion, this idea is completely flawed and there are several reasonable alternatives.

Clearly the price of fuel has little to do with pressing problems of traffic and pollution. The inevitable demand for time-saving and safe travelling in the modern world makes the change in price of gas become rather insignificant, which proves the ineffectiveness of the given policy. In other words, even if the price were increased, people would still travel on a daily basis and the problems of traffic and pollution would stay unsolved.  Additionally, this solution could easily trigger social disagreement and resentment. This, coupled with the reluctance of using expensive fuel to travel every day, could be counter-productive and this proposed idea would become irrelevant.

On the other hand, alternatives to increased price of petrol show greater effectiveness.  First, the government could implement certain regulations restricting the use of private vehicles such as cars and turn people to using public transportation. This would relieve many roads from heavy traffic by reducing the number of vehicles, which in return alleviates the problem of pollution caused by exhaust. Second, cycling which proves environmentally friendly should be more encouraged in major cities. At the same time, separate zones for cyclists should be created to avoid the overload of traffic in the rush hour when the number of vehicles might exceed the road’s capacity.

In conclusion, I believe that heightening the price of fuel used for travelling to address traffic and pollution problems is somewhat absurd; and that some other methods should
