Transcript of The Pushcart War

Intro New York City has a big traffic problem that needs to be fixed.Trucks are running the streets and there's no room for any other vehicle(or pushcart).Truck drivers are also very aggressive and will run down anybody that gets in their way. HOW THE SOLUTION WILL HELP If every trucking company only drives 3 trucks a day,there will only be 9 trucks on the street every day.It will make a safer New York City. Also,let's face it,like Wenda Gambling said,there were to many trucks and they were too big.The Three need to make smaller trucks and then maybe they will have more than 3 trucks on the street a day.Carpooling would also help beause there will be less vehicles on the street altogether. CONCLUSION Peace can come to New York City.The pushcart war can end if the Three really do try to end it.They need to have smaller and less trucks.
