The first most successful thing that ever came into existence was a wheel. With the passage of time, the importance of transportation has increased and become more relevant to the economic and social development of any state. If we take the example of the U.S, it has the most extensive infrastructure for the development of its roads, and this is also the same reason why it is the highest-grossing country of all time.
In this fast-moving world, one of the key features that enable you to achieve success is efficiency. If your network, communication, and connectivity are fast enough, you might be able to make a name for yourself in the society. Similarly, many Western countries have already chosen this path to make their future globally strong, but there also exist a lot of countries that are far behind in this race. However, many studies have deduced that by the time we step into the year of 2050, most states will be enjoying the privileges of an urbanized society.
Transportation: A major reason for deforestation and road accidents
A better road infrastructure not only elevates the economy of the country, but it also makes a huge contribution to a better environment system. With more vehicles on the road, the country gains a better position in the charts regarding the international economy. Apart from all the benefits road infrastructure imposes, there is also a significant factor which comes with the building of these roads, and that is none other than deforestation. To obtain shorter routes, forests are chopped to the ground, and this not only puts the green life in danger, but it also makes a human prone to wild road accidents.
