We have summarized few disadvantages of private transport as mentioned below.
  • Traffic jam is the main problem from the private carrier. It also costs the loss of precious time of the persons when they are heading towards their work. Fuel is also getting wasted due to the traffic jam as more traffic jams cause the burning of more fuels on the road.
  • The number of road accidents increases continuously due to the high numbers of vehicles on the road. Road rages also frequently occur on road due to accidents
  • Parking has also become a major concern for our country as the parking space is shrinking continuously due to the large number of vehicles on the road.
  • Multiple types of pollution such as air pollution, noise pollution are caused by this huge traffic. Several types of diseases such as suffering from ear, nose or throat problem, burning eyes, dizziness, lung infection etc. are very common in human beings due to pollution.    
  • The rise in the number of vehicles on the road is also responsible for global warming.
