    Jan 31 2014: It would be simple if we can control population and educate people. Enforce law and encourage energy sectors for environment friendly solutions.
    If not, then government should plan cities after investigating what is taking people on road. If because of schools, build schools in every community so that kids can walk or use bicycle. If its hospital or amusement parks, bring them closer to their people. If its because of market access, develop community markets. And so on..
    All we need is planning and educating people. :)
