Why You Should Spend Your Days Idle Free

Tammie Cooper, the Northern Coordinator for Utah Clean Cities explains their Idle Free Program and how it can help keep Utah's air a little cleaner this winter. 

Turn Your Key Be Idle Free

Turn off your engine when your vehicle is parked. It takes more fuel to idle for 10 seconds, than it does to restart your vehicle, and idling truly gets you nowhere. Researchers estimate that idling, from heavy-duty and light-duty vehicles combined, wastes about 6 billion gallons of fuel annually. When you make an effort to turn off your vehicle, you benefit yourself, your wallet, your environment, and your community. Remember when your vehicle is idling you are getting ZERO mpg.
