Avoid idling your vehicle
Have done this
Although there is a bylaw prohibiting vehicles from idling in designated areas outside schools and hospitals, there are many reasons not to idle elsewhere. Idling your vehicle less will save you money on fuel, improve air quality in your community and reduce emissions contributing to climate change.
Reduce your "warm up" idling time to 60 seconds before driving away, making sure your vehicle's windows are clear first. And turn off your vehicle when you’re waiting for a train to go by or in a long fast food or car wash lineup.
