|Motor Vehicles >> Idle Reduction >> "Turn Off Your Engine" campaign|
Our voluntary "Turn Off Your Engine" program is aimed at distributing signs and materials to partners interested in reducing unnecessary idling in their parking lots and pick-up areas. The Division of Air quality has partnered with the Campaign for Clean Air to develop and distribute a tool kit to help students and teachers complete idle reduction projects at their schools. Learn more at http://www.campaignforcleanair.org/schools-no-idling-toolkit.html
Or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more or build an anti-idling campaign at your school.
Excessive and unnecessary vehicle idling is a serious, avoidable contributor to air pollution and poor human health. Excessive idling is widespread in all types of vehicles, including cars, buses and trucks. This behavior occurs throughout virtually all transportation activities, including parents picking up children after school, customers waiting in line at a drive-through ATM or restaurant, trucks delivering goods and buses waiting to pick up passengers.
Unnecessary idling contributes to air pollution and has been linked to negative health effects. Please do your part, "Turn off your engine!"
