A big reason for traffic in cities and highways are the slow moving overloaded, goods carrying, heavy vehicles. Many a times 2-3 trucks move simultaneously, sometimes even chatting to fellow drivers, this blocks the fast moving lanes on highways, resulting in slow moving traffic deep into the cities, many a times its the cause of fatal accidents as small cars try to overtake, with little margin for error. In countries such as US, Canada, UK, UAE etc heavy vehicle cannot use the first lane even if there is no other vehicle in that lane. Patrolling vehicles and CCTV should be used to enforce this rule, also imposing a penalty on the driver and on owners of the vehicle will ensure roads are unclogged and safe for citizens.
