UK's economic and demographic growth has won the admiration of all countries across the European continent. As the popular saying highlights ?The grass is always greener on the other side', Britain is not free from drawbacks. The Britishers in general feel that they lack space as they sense that their island is getting cramped up. They sense this feeling more importantly since the island is densely populated. Over the years, the big cities and suburbs in the UK are sprawling, not to ignore the skyrocketing prices in the real estate domain especially in city centers. As a result, there is an increase in the number of commuters (people) back and forth to work. As far as the eye can see, traffic jams in Britain are uncontrollable. It is an astonishing fact that a huge proportion of British workers remain stuck in traffic for hours. It has and will in time have a harmful impact on their quality of life and work. Commuting through long and exhausting hours is a very stressful way to begin a workday. It prevents individuals (Britishers in this case) from striking a balance between work and family life.
