Make engine idling illegal
I have noticed more vehicles leaving their engines running whilst parked. Apparently it is to charge mobile phones and keep air conditioning/ heaters running. This is particularly problematic at the school my daughters attend. Cars leave their engines running for up to 20 minutes! Needless to say, this is a huge risk to health and the environment. If this act was made illegal, drivers would think twice before they act in such a selfish and ignorant manner. It would also mean that schools would have the power, to enforce drivers, to switch of their engines whilst waiting to collect their children.
Why the contribution is important
It is important to deter drivers from engine idling and this will contribute to reducing the amount of fumes going into our lungs and the environment.
