According to DENR (2016), transport-related air pollution is the biggest environmental health threat in Philippines. One example of transport-related air pollution is smoke belching.

Smoke belching is defined as the release of flame, smoke and gas commonly from vehicles and industrial factories. This problem is evident in older models of vehicles, most especially in our public utility vehicles and jeepneys. PUVs and PUJs are the most common mode of transportation for the Filipino people thus making it beneficial, but there are also downsides into having too much vehicles on our main roads such as air, land and noise pollution.

One of the harmful effects of smoke belching is that it contributes to global warming, which is caused by air pollution, and also contributes to acid rain, which could harm the trees in our environment. Smoke belching does not only harm our environment but it could also be harmful to us, human beings as breathing polluted air would lead to numerous illnesses. By banning smoke belching public utility vehicles and jeepneys on the main roads in the Philippines, these problems could be lessened.

Since air pollution from vehicles is one of the largest contributor to air pollution, we would like you to support our proposal on banning smoke belching PUVs and PUJs on main roads in the Philippines by signing our petition.
