Anti-idling Campaign

Students at many schools around the state are supporting an Anti-idling Campaign. We would like your help to reduce idling while waiting in your car.

Did you know that if everyone in the United States stopped idling for five minutes a day it would be equivalent to taking five hundred thousand cars off the road and saving one point six million tons of CO2? By turning your engine off when parked for more than 10 seconds, you will save money by reducing fuel use. You will breathe easier by preventing unhealthy exhaust from building up in and around your car, and you will protect the blue sky by reducing idling emissions that contribute to smog, because 10 seconds of idling uses more fuel than restarting your engine.

Remember to Turn your key and be idle free!
