English around us

A world of words


gridlockA situation where roads in a town become so blocked by cars that it is impossible for any traffic to move.

There are more than a billion cars in the world today – and by the middle of the century there could be up to four times as many, as the growing middle classes of countries like India, China and Brazil seek the freedom and status car ownership appears to offer.

But if so many people want to drive – how will we prevent global gridlock?

  • Do you like driving or do you prefer another means of transport?
  • What age should people start driving?
  • Does people’s behaviour change when driving?
  • In your country, are there enough rules for a safe driving?
  • Would you increase the penalty for drunk driving?
