You may have read recently that the City of Minneapolis has enacted an anti-idling ordinance, with the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improve the air quality of our city.  The ordinance restricts cars from idling for more than 3 minutes in a one hour period, and the City has asked neighborhood organizations to help spread the word about the restrictions (website here and flyer here).  All questions of enforcement aside, hopefully we will succeed in improving our city’s air quality.


One Response to “New City of Minneapolis Idling Ordinance”

    The Children’s Clean Air Network is building a grass-roots and mass-media campaign educating drivers to shut off their vehicles to save $ billions in gas and slash millions of tons of greenhouse gas across North America. We’ll also clear the air for our kids; one in five now have asthma in Nova Scotia.

    Andrew MacPhee, president of Halifax Chrysler, is an ideal partner to promote our IDLE-FREE message. He and his staff interact with thousands of customers and can influence them to run their cars responsibly – on and off the dealership.

    He’s posted IDLE-FREE messages all around his dealership and he’s sponsored a school to do the same.
