Sign the Petition to

COSTA RICA CITIZENS, PRESIDENT, SUPREME COURT OF JUSTICE, MINISTER OF TRANSPORTATION (MOPT)

THE COSTANERA COASTAL ROAD THAT RUNS ALL THE WAY TO THE PANAMA BORDER ON THE PACIFIC SIDE HAS BECOME A NIGHTMARE FOR THE COMMUNITIES ADJACENT, DUE TO THE AWFUL NOISE PRODUCED BY   MANY MANY TRUCKS (ABOUT 600 A DAY AND GROWING) ZIPPING AT DANGEROUS SPEEDS AND USING CONSTANTLY THEIR JAKE BRAKES, AND KILLING DAILY PRECIOUS WILDLIFE THAT HAPPENS TO CROSS THE ROAD TO REACH THE BEACHES SIDES OF THE JUNGLE.

OUR SMALL INSTITUTE KEEPS USUALLY OUT OF POLITICS, BUT THIS TIME WE DECIDED TO COME HELP OUR NEIGHBORS ANIMALS AND HUMANS.

THE PETITION ASKS TO FORCE ROAD REGULATION AND NOISE CONTROL

TO PRESIDENT LAURA CHINCHILLA, THE CORTE SUPREMA DE JUSTICIA  AND MOPT (MINISTERIO DE TRANSPORTES Y OBRAS PUBLICAS)

WE NEED TO STOP! OR REGULATE THE TRAFFIC OF TRUCKS THAT ARE DESTROYING THE LIFE OF THE  ENVIRONMENT AND THE RESIDENTS OF THE SOUTH COAST.

EVERY DAY AND NIGHT AN AVERAGE OF 600 TRUCKS RUNS BY THE COASTAL ROAD KILLING TONS OF ANIMALS (SLOTS, IGUANAS, MANIGORDOS JUST TO NAME A FEW), THE NOISE OF THEIR BREAKS IS CONSTANT AND UNBEARABLY NERVE WRECKING FOR ANY LIVING BEING, ANIMAL AND HUMAN. 

THIS IN IN ITSELF IS A CRIME, A PSYCHOLOGICAL TERRORISM, IT DAMAGES OUR HARMONY AND THE FOREST'S!

THE NOISY BREAKS ARE NOT NECESSARY.

OF THE 600 DAILY TRUCKS, ABOUT 150  ARE MOVING INSIDE COSTA RICA, TRANSPORTING GOODS, WHILE THE OTHER 450 ARE COMING  FROM ALL COUNTRIES.

QUESTION: A BOAT CAN LOAD 1,000 TRUCK'S CONTAINERS, IS CHEAPER..WHY THEN ARE ALL THOSE TRUCKS RUNNING LIKE MONSTERS IN FRONT OF OUR HOMES, SCHOOLS, BEACHES, PARKS, AND TOWNS?

THEY DRIVE LIKE MANIACS, THEY POLLUTE THE AIR, THEY KILL DAILY SPECIES IN DANGER, THEY ARE DANGEROUS TO PEOPLE AND A MONSTROUS DISTURBANCE TO SAY THE LEAST.

THE SOUTH PACIFIC COAST IS THE LUNG OF COSTA RICA, A REFUGE OF WILDLIFE AND PRIMARY AND SECONDARY FOREST, AN IDYLLIC TOURISTIC ATTRACTION, A CHOSEN SPOT FOR VACATIONS HOMES AND NOW THE PEACE AND BEAUTY THAT ONCE WAS SOVEREIGN HERE IS BEING DESTROYED.

WE WANT YOU TO TAKE ACTION !! PLEASE HELP US:

1) TO STOP TRUCKS RUNNING AT WEEK ENDS

2) TO REGULATE SPEED LIMITS AND CONTROL THE SOUND NOISE (THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO ACHIEVE THIS OR SIMPLY TRUCKS CAN STILL BREAK WITHOUT HAVING TO MAKE THE DEAFENING SOUND)

3) TO SEND THOSE 400 FOREIGN TRUCKS TO THE OLD BUENOS AIRES ROUTE AND KEEP THE COSTANERA ROAD FOR THE PURPOSE IT SHOULD SERVE, LIKE ANY OTHER COASTAL ROAD IN OTHER BEAUTIFUL COUNTRIES: TO ENJOY IT! TO LET TOURIST COME BACK, KIDS RIDE THEIR BIKES WITHOUT BEING KILLED...
