As is known to everyone, the National Day holiday endows people with a lot of benefits, such as relaxing ourselves, expanding our outlook, as well as reuniting with our families; but it also brings about some problems which cannot be ignored. On one hand, during the seven-day holiday, innumerable traveling expeditions are flocking to the bus stations, train stations and airports, causing tedious traffic jams and thus adding some undesirable matters to the should-be-gleeful trip. Too heavy traffic not only delays the time of arriving at the destination, but is also the source of traffic accidents. On the other hand, it also has negative impact on our environment. Nowadays, more and more people choose to travel by driving, which means a halo of auto fumes. It can add greatly to air pollution. Besides, some tourists even throw away cigarette ends, cans, as well as plastic bags carelessly. Such behaviors can also destroy the ecological environment of scenic spots. To solve these problems, I suggest that the following methods are worth a try. First of all, I think that the relevant departments should arrange more transports like trains, long-distance buses, and airplanes during the National Day holiday in order to meet people’s traveling requirements. Secondly, the government should insist to impose restrictions on the number of private cars on road during the Golden Week. Last but not least, it is necessary for the government also make good of mass medias to help people be aware of the importance of protecting the environment and encourage them to traveling by the public transport.
