BTW, how would they enforce the idling law. Do they go around to see if people are warming their cars in the morning? What about vehicles that come standard with remote start? Banned from sale? Banned from area?
What is the reasoning behind this most silly law? And what is the penalty?
I'm guessing the goal is to reduce air pollution.

What comes standard with a vehicle varies from state to state according to the laws of the state. For example, in California, vehicles must have a special shield around the gas tank opening to prevent fuel fumes from adding to the air pollution and smog.

In my area the law is mainly about child safety and anti-theft. The benefit to environment is secondary. We have had cases where people leave cars idling while they run into a convenience store and when they come out the car is gone, last year one of the cars taken had a sleeping toddler in the back seat. To me it is just common sense not to leave an unattended vehicle running, I guess I'm just old fashioned and out of touch.

My car has a valet key, it will start and allow the car to be driven at 5 MPH for a mile and then will stop. And if it's too cold for me to hang out in the car, it's too cold for Shrek or any children/animals.My car idles, only to warm up and I am not far away while it idles. Usually cleaning snow/frost off the cars of my neighbors. Never leave my car to run while I run into a store.

And I sure hope it applies to the cops. They are biggest abusers of fuel of any person or persons in this country.
There is a cop that sits at the neighborhood convenience store talking to the owner. He sometimes is there for more than one hour. Car running outside the whole time. He does this almost daily.
I took his car number and wrote it down, but decided to leave it alone.
Sorry.. missed this.

We have Doge trucks. There is no law banning possession or sale, just use.

They do go through neighborhoods at certain times and look for idling vehicles without drivers. They write a ticket.

I have heard two reasons for this common sense law.

1) It reduces emissions.
2) It deters theft.

I won't get started on this.

When those automatic starters first came out, my granddaughter's boyfriend worked for a company that sold and installed them. So he installed one on his car as soon as they came in. He was upstairs in my apartment and it was cold out. He stood at the window and started the car. The police were just riding by. They stopped and got out to see what was going on. Her boyfriend would stop it and then start it. The police were really baffled. The kept walking around the car. They even tried the doors. They were locked. Finally Jeff went downstairs and got in the car. He had a heck of a time explaining what the car was doing and that he was responsible. He had to convince them he wasn't stealing the car.
