Petitioning Mayor of New York City Bill de Blasio and 2 others

Tell Mayor de Blasio to keep NYC kids safe from garbage trucks and move the ramp


The City of New York is putting NYC children in harm’s way by routing a garbage truck ramp between two playgrounds where thousands of children play every year. In addition to the obvious risks for collisions and fatalities, children will be forced to breathe diesel exhaust from 150 garbage trucks a day idling on the ramp.  

There is a simple answer – move the ramp just one block.

Mayor de Blasio has made it a priority to end traffic deaths and injuries on our streets, stating that that no level of fatality on city streets is inevitable or acceptable. But by building a garbage truck ramp right where children play, the City is dramatically increasing the chances of injury or death.

Sign the petition to tell the Mayor he can save lives by moving the ramp just one block.

This petition was delivered to:
  • Mayor of New York City
    Bill de Blasio
  • New York City Department of Sanitation Commissioner
    Commissioner Kathryn Garcia
  • New York City Department of Transportation Commissioner
    Commissioner Polly Trottenberg
