More than 8,000 car skeletons have been removed off the streets of Amman since 2011, with 1250 skeletons removed this year alone.
Executive Manager of the Amman Municipality, Raed Haddadin, said that any reported car skeletons, or ones that have been spotted on regular patrols, are immediately removed off the street, in order to keep the roads and environment safe and clean.
Haddadin explained that the car’s owner is notified once his vehicle has been found and is given notice to have it removed.
If they fail to do so, the car will be removed by the Central Traffic Department and the Criminal Investigation Department.
The campaign to clean the city’s streets from car skeletons was launched in 2011.
The municipality has a three-acre area of land dedicated to storing the deserted skeletons.
