Get another loan from the World Bank to build at least 10 sky scrapers to be used as parking lots and then ban street parking because it crowds the roads.
Every commercial building must have parking space for at least 200 vehicles depending on its size.

There must be as many bus stop terminals as possible to avoid on and off passenger loading on main roads.
