 Cities "Worse to Live in Than 20 Years Ago"


  One thousand people were surveyed about a range of issues which affect cities, and the remarkable findings show that life in today's mega-cities is so stressful that at least two-thirds of those currently living in big cities would like to relocate to the countryside or a small town.


  The stress of the getting from A to B in big cities is at the top of the list of problems. For many people, the daily commute(通勤)to work is a source of frustration. 40% of the people in the survey have suffered from road rage while stuck in traffic on the way to work. The cost of public transport is also a serious problem. Many people think the price of underground and bus travel is too high and that they have to devote more than 10% of their salary to transport cost.


  The general cost of living in cities is another problem. The high property prices in most big cities put buying a property out of reach of most first-time buyers. Many young people are priced out of the housing market, and have to take in lodgers to make ends meet, or rent over-priced flats miles away from the city centre. In London, for instance, the price of buying even a one-bedroom flat is so prohibitive that many have given up even considering putting money aside for a deposit.


  Another issue facing people who live in cities is rising crime. Crime rates have rocketed in many big cities, and many say there are several dangerous no-go areas in their city. Fear of crime is on the increase-street crimes, such as mugging and assault, are now very common-and many are afraid of going out at night alone.


  Many were also concerned by the lack of green spaces and play facilities for children. Most major conurbations(有卫星城的大都市)surveyed have a far smaller of parks and gardens than a generation ago. Planning permissions seem to have been given for an ever-greater number of supermarkets, office developments and apartments on sites where there were previously green spaces. Many of the respondents in the survey said they felt stressed and suffocated(窒息)in the city, a problem which is compounded by pollution.


  And finally, the majority of people in the survey were fed up with the constant noise pollution the roar of traffic, the sound of loud music blaring(发刺耳声)out of a neighbor's window, and the constant sound of activity. It is not surprising, then, that the levels of stress-related illnesses among people who live in cities are higher than ever before. Big cities, once a mecca(朝拜的地方)for ambitious people seeking fame and fortune, are now less and less popular among people of all ages. Perhaps the 21st century is set to be the century of the small town and the countryside.


  (单项选择题)Most people in the survey who live in big cities would like to move somewhere smaller.


  A.Right


  B.Wrong


  C.Not mentioned


  【答案】A

  【解析】第一段 “at least two-thirds of those currently living in big cities would like to relocate to the countryside or a small town.”,三分之二,超过了一半。
