Hong Kong polluted and choked with traffic

Hong Kong is a crowded city, with just over 2,100 km of road packed with more than 730,000 vehicles. To reduce the crush, people should be advised to travel by public transport. Legalising Uber, which would aid the growth of the ride-hailing company, would mean more single-passenger vehicles on the road, encouraging the public to travel in such private vehicles.
The problems facing Hong Kong, with too many vehicles on often-narrow roads, are completely different from those faced by other cities with a low population density. More vehicles on the road would worsen rush hour traffic, not only causing jams and but also aggravating air pollution, posing an increased health risk. The Hong Kong government should not legalise Uber and, more importantly, should encourage more people to take public transport.
