Without proper means of transport, it is not possible for a person to get from one place to another be it on a bullock cart or boat, bicycle or any other means. It is also not possible to move goods and other essential items.
Over the years, more and more people have moved from the traditional systems of transport to the mechanized ones, i.e. car, scooter, bus, truck, etc. These modes of transport have till recently been running on fossil fuel sources of energy. These are not only burning out a non-renewable source of energy, but also causing a great deal of pollution. Therefore, the need of the hour is conservation of energy in the transport sector. Individual owners of vehicles and the transporters have to be sensitized on the need to conserve energy to protect the environment and to make their systems more cost-effective. The manufacturers of automobiles must be given incentives to produce energy-efficient vehicles
There are a number of rules to be followed for the conservation of energy, i.e. fuel, in the transport sector.
Have your vehicle checked for emission control regularlynot only because defaulters are fined, but because it leads to fuel conservation and pollution control. It is time we inculcate these habits to become a part of our daily routines. Only by practising and preaching these conservation tips can we think of future progress. Good habits taught early will salvage the oil shortage to a great extent.
Alternative fuels such as CNG
(compressed natural gas), propane, and electricity have been introduced, the others are
being tested and will probably be introduced in the transport sector soon.
