No Idling Pledge

No Idling Pledge
Take the Pledge and receive a Free Window Cling (while supplies last).
I recognize that motor vehicle idling is illegal. It burns fuel needlessly and wastes money. Idling is unhealthy for people and our environment. And, idling emissions kill.

In order to reduce idling, I can
  • Use a remote starter wisely to avoid excessive warm up
  • Drive the car to warm up rather than idle the engine
  • Be on time in order to avoid idling while waiting
  • Use mass transit, walk, or bike if possible
  • Turn the car off.
  • I pledge to incorporate these simple steps into my daily routine in order to reduce auto emissions and improve air quality.
