Green Tip: Idle threats

by Justin Mog, assistant to the provost for sustainability last modified Mar 18, 2010 12:51 PM

Stuck waiting for the train to pass or construction crews at Warnock?

Don't leave your car idling while you wait. Save yourself some money and gas while saving us all from unnecessary pollution. Shut off the engine - and take a deep breath. The amount of fuel consumed to restart a car is the equivalent of idling 20 to 60 seconds. Idling longer than this is a waste, and an idling engine produces more emissions than a moving car.
