Flooding is one of natural disasters in Indonesia, especially in Jakarta beside earth quake. And it is one of serious problems due to flood.

The other problem is illegal house. Many people from central or east java move to Jakarta just looking for a job and they bring their family but they do not have house for their living. So they make an illegal house in the side of river in Jakarta and it makes more flooding in Jakarta.
There are many ways to decrease the flood. First of all, we must aware of flood. Do not try to throw away the garbage. And the last but not least, keep the cleanliness, because the cleanliness is a part of belief in Islamic religion. (Written by Intan K. / XI science two)

Everyday, traffic jam always happens in Jakarta. The Jakarta’s streets have already fulfilled by the cars. Traffic jam makes people worry because they are not comfortable by the situation in the street. Besides, traffic jam also makes the police in Jakarta be very busy. Actually, traffic jam in Jakarta is caused by some problems.
The first, traffic jam in Jakarta is caused by many vehicles. Now, more people use their private vehicle to go to their offices. They do not use public transportation such as bus to go to their offices. Whereas, if they use the bus they will not feel tired. They prefer buying vehicle than using the bus, because the cost for buying the vehicle is cheap.
The second is violation of traffic light. Many people do not pay attention to the traffic light in the street. They do not abbey the rules. Beside that, the government does not give a serious punishment. Ultimately, traffic jam happens in the street.
The third problem is much accident which happens in the street. It is caused by the driver who isn’t careful. If the accident happened, the other driver can not drive well. And traffic jam happened.
I suggest that the driver must be careful and they must obey the rules in the street. As long as they do it well, traffic jam will be reduced. And the driver will fell comfortable when they drive their own vehicle. (Written by Atik Hayu / XI science one)
