Anti Idling Campaign
Turn it Off
- Did you know that a mere 10 seconds of idling uses more fuel than turning the engine off and on? And, idling is not good for our health.
- Exhaust from vehicles waiting near schools easily enters school buildings through air intakes and open windows. Vehicle exhaust is among the largest sources of air pollution in New Jersey.
- Children are more susceptible to air pollution than healthy adults because they breath at a faster rate and their respiratory system is still developing.
- Still not convinced? Idling of any vehicle for more than three minutes is against the law (unless you are in moving traffic). So, turn those engines off!
