Editor’s note: Chau Thanh Nghia dreams of a traffic jam-free Vietnam in 2035 as he joined the “Ky Vong Viet Nam 20 Nam Toi” (“My Expectations for Vietnam in 20 Years”) writing competition. Traffic gridlock is considered an incurable disease of many major cites around the world. In Vietnam, the phenomenon happens every day in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, becoming a huge nuisance for millions of city dwellers. I am hoping and imagining about a Vietnam in 20 years when there will be no traffic congestion in its cities. In the next 20 years, when going to the streets, you will no longer have to struggle with seas of people and vehicles as you used to. You can get through the streets leisurely and safely, and travel to anywhere you want without the slightest concern about traffic jams. In the next 20 years, you will no longer feel tired, stressful and annoyed by the noises and dust coming from somewhere on the streets. You will no longer have to force yourself to get up early in the morning to go to work for fear of traffic congestion. In the next 20 years, you can feel free to enjoy the fresh, cool air from parks and rows of trees along the roads. You can save a lot of money and precious time whenever you go out. And you can easily trade and exchange goods and products at any place in the city without having to think about traffic jams….
