Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

Traffic congestion is a common problem in larger cities. In some cities, congestion gets so bad during rush hour that it is sometimes faster to walk than to drive. Traffic accidents are also a problem. Unfortunately, these problems are not easy to solve. However, an experimental traffic system being tested in several cities in Northern Europe has led to some surprising results.

The system is called "shared streets". It is an experimental system that has very few traffic laws. As a result, shared street areas have no traffic lights, street signs, or even divisions between street and sidewalk. Although most people would expect this to cause the number of traffic jams and accidents to pile up, thus far, there have been significant drops in both. One reason is that the shared streets system encourages people to be more careful. Without traffic rules, people tend to slow down and pay more attention to each other. Normal traffic systems, on the other hand, rely on signs and signals, which people often miss or disobey, leading to accidents. In addition, the shared streets system decreases traffic jams because without fixed lanes and parking spaces, it is easier for cars to move around freely when there is a lot of traffic.

The phrase "these problems" in paragraph 1 refers to _____.

  • rush hour and accidents
  • road system and traffic jam
  • traffic systems and rush hour
  • traffic jam and accidents

  • The fewer cars there are, the worse the traffic.
  • The more cars there are, the faster they go.
  • People always walk during rush hour.
  • Cars can only move very slowly.
What is one reason that the “shared streets” system has decreased accidents?
  • People have decided not to drive at all.
  • People are more cautious of each other.
  • The speed limit is lower.
  • The laws are stronger.
