• Just 10 seconds of idling uses more gasoline than restarting your car.

• Idling harms your engine and exhaust system. It only takes 30 seconds to warm up your car and start driving on freezing days.

• Children are especially vulnerable to air pollution. They breathe faster than adults, inhale more air per pound of body weight, and stand at tailpipe level.

• You are not safe from air pollution inside an idling vehicle. Exposure to some pollutants is actually higher inside an idling vehicle than at the roadside.

• Idling hurts our air quality and environment. Car tailpipes emit carcinogens and other toxins, smog-forming chemicals, and green house gases into our air.

• In most cases, New Jersey state law prohibits idling for more than 3 minutes. (N.J.A.C.7:27-14, 15 AND N.J.S.A39:3-70.2).
