Damage to the environment is a major topic studied in KS2 geography. One aspect looked at is traffic and the problems associated with it, for example air pollution and congestion.
Vehicles moving on a road are known as traffic. Vehicles include cars, lorries, tractors and motorbikes. When the roads are full of traffic we call it congestion. Traffic can cause all sorts of problems for the environment. The roads eventually wear out and need to be repaired or rebuilt, not to mention the pollution caused by fumes that are released into the atmosphere from exhausts.
