Why this petition matters

Started by Ala Khalil

Sign the petition if you’d like to live that vehicle-free day once a month here in Amman and let’s see if we can make it happen all together!

Current situation: 

1. According to the latest WHO data published in 2017 Road Traffic Accidents Deaths in Jordan reached 1,792 or 6.77% of total deaths. The age adjusted Death Rate is 29.41 per 100,000 of population ranks Jordan #42 in the world, which makes the pedestrian at risk! 

2. 600 people die prematurely each year in Jordan because of urban pollution. 50-90% of air pollution in Jordanian towns is caused by road traffic. Readings taken in 2007 by Jordanian researchers showed that levels of black carbon particles in the air were higher in urban areas (caused by vehicles and heating) than in industrial areas (Hamashaa, Almomanib, Abu-Allabanc, Arnottd, 2010). 

Problems we are all facing: 

1. Too many cars polluting the city

2. Limited public parks and gardens 

3. Reckless driving behavior

A baby step forward!  

A car-free day once a month in the city of Amman.

In many countries (Examples: France and Italy) they have that lucky day once a month! where no cars are allowed in the streets.

Let’s all make it happen! Let’s fight air pollution at least once a month! One step towards preserving our natural existence. and let our kids enjoy the the city without worries.
