All those examples are able to reduce pollution with those easy ideas we can help the environment. In the future I hope they come up with electric cars or maybe even a water powered engine. Another reason for Global warming is Garbage. The things that we put in the garbage take a long time to compose and can release toxic fumes into the air. We already solved some of the problem by recycling and composting but there’s still a huge amount of garbage.
However, this is not always the case as cyclists seem to have their own rules. Although there are street signs indicating that cycling is not permitted during the shop opening hours, a proportion of them disregard this rule, making this one situation where the pedestrians no longer feel safe and secure. On City Road the cyclists use the road alongside other vehicles and appear to follow the rules, therefore, it would suggest that pedestrians in Cardiff feel safer. The pedestrians on City Road, also has the advantage of having islands to help cross the road safer with also different coloured tarmac, which defines the use for both drivers and walkers Lowestoft’s main street being pedestrianised is ideal for able and non able bodies equally. It is all evenly levelled and where the road meets the street, the pavement has a ridged texture to help make travel easier for the visually impaired.
A smart car has additional technologies that help drivers by improving their safety when driving. These supplementary technologies make sure the driver does not fall asleep while on the wheel, lets him or her appreciate distance better when driving and parking and they also help drivers control their speed by giving their advice if they are going too fast for the respective terrain, for example. B. What is a smart road? A smart road is a road that has an IT system that communicates with the IT system that is found in smart cars.
To What extent can Urban Areas be Sustainable? Urban sustainability is the idea that an urban area can function as normal and be organised without excessive reliance on its surrounding country side. It also suggests that urban areas should be developed so as to minimise the amount of non-renewable resources being used and also maximise efficiency within the city in terms of waste, pollution, transport and services. These problems are ever growing in large cities as they urbanise and due to large influxes of people living in the area, many cities experience overcrowding. This can lead to heavy traffic; vast amounts of waste, a lack of food, water and housing which are all the characteristics of an unsustainable city.
The main issue is that the sprawl of cities is ‘taking too much space; and the result of all that free and unusual expansion is not beautiful’ Gottmann & Harper (1967). As cities spread further out, to get to the centre means further to travel to work or social visits. One of the main issues with Urban Sprawl is that it means being further from the city and therefore having to rely more heavily on private transport, ie. Your car. With more cars on the road and this is contributing to the ever growing concern of global warming and climate change, as well as other problems associated with air pollution.
