  1. Why Japan and not newly industrialized countries or other developing countries who have solved such stupid problems.

  2. Public transport system must be the key like in every developed and developing country. We have too many cars for our roads, leading to growing pollution and not just congestion. And with large no.s being refurbished cars that aren’t fuel efficient, it only gets worse.
