Big cars with a seating capacity of 6/8/10/12 people and only driver is there or in some cases another companion is also there.
They take up a lot of space on city roads leading to congestion.
After all traffic congestion is a problem of too many vehicles for a limited stretch of road.
Why not demarcate city areas into full seating zone where only cars full to the capacity only are allowed? Or else you may charge a penalty for any car seen in full seating zone without full capacity.

Kerala is a small state of India with a population of around 4 crores and spanning about 600 km in length and a quarter of that in width.
Road accident deaths in the state for the yaer 2008 is around 3450.
Yes, it is around 10 persons per day. I dont know the exact figures for terrorist deaths but I think it will be much less.
And most of these accidents are the result of speeding private buses racing each other so that they are the first to grab the passengers.
How can lateral thinking help?
One idea for decongeting the roads is to have moveable road dividers so that in morning when uptown traffic is high dividers are moved to have more space for uptown traffic and viceversa
