    Shopping Mall Apartment Living Sidewalks of Amman Riyadh Property Rental Laws Beirut Public Transportation Cities of the Arab East Zoning Urban Sprawl The Domination of Amman Introduction An Anatomy of the City Using Public Transportation in Amman Publications Resources Urban Crossroads Unnecessary Trips also available in Arabic Unnecessary Trips Urban Crossroads 134 This article is also available in Arabic يمكن قراءة هذا المقال أيضا باللغة العربية I wrote an article in this series about four years ago entitled Too Many Short Trips I discussed in it the apparent and direct relationship between traffic congestion and the number of unnecessary trips we make in our cars I was again reminded of the importance of this relationship when I recently went through the process of certifying my daughter s high school diploma I was told by my daughter s school to start at the department of the Ministry of Education in Amman s Jabal al Husayn district where yearly school transcripts are authenticated It took me about thirty minutes to drive there Once I arrived the process of authenticating the transcripts was relatively straight forward and took me about 45 minutes Following that I drove to another department of the Ministry of Education that is located in the Jabal al Luweibdeh district where the process is to be completed The drive to that department took me another thirty minutes or so However as I started the certification process there I was told that I do not have all the right documents even though I had brought with me all the documents specified in the instructions provided by my daughter s school I therefore returned home The drive back home took another thirty minutes After making sure that I had all the required documents I returned to Jabal al Luweibdeh the next morning The drive took about thirty minutes or so I spent about an hour and a half at the Ministry of Education offices there got the certificate and spent about thirty minutes driving back home To give credit where credit is due I should mention that the Ministry staff members were generally very courteous and a number of them were also very pleasant and helpful The instructions regarding what documents to bring however were not totally clear In addition I must have moved between one office and the other over fifteen times to get documents signed and stamped or to pay fees I couldn t figure out the reason for all this moving around between offices The process clearly can be greatly streamlined and one should be able to complete it through a simpler procedure that consumes much less time and effort What I would like to discuss in more detail however is not the unnecessary amount of time and effort I spent following up on the certification process in the Ministry s offices but the amount of time I spent on the road driving between my home and the Ministry s offices Had I been able to complete the process
