01/19/2017 - SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) We've all been impacted by the winter inversion, now there are some out there trying to make a difference. Tammie Cooper, Executive Director of Utah Clean Cities sat down with Emily Clark on Good Morning Utah to talk about what we can do.
Utah Clean Cities started over 10 years ago because our air quality was some of the worst in the nation. Since then we have implemented a 100% Idle Free Bus policy and we have SLC, Park City, Holiday, Murray, Logan, Cottonwood Height and Alta as Idle Free Cities.
Everyone can be Idle Free. It's something we can all do to improve air quality. No matter what you are driving; your personal car, your fleet truck, your delivery van, your semi-truck, your lawn mower. We can all do our part - Turn the Key and Be Idle Free!
Choosing the right car is also important in impacting our clean air. The EPA sticker helps us make informed choices when choosing and purchasing a vehicle to achieve the best fuel economy. In short, the less fuel we burn, the less tail pipe emissions.
There are cleaner versions of every vehicle on the market. When you are in the market for a new car, look for the EPA sticker to help you purchase the cleanest type of vehicle possible
FuelEconomy.gov also provides tools to help consumers choose a fuel-efficient vehicle that meets their needs. These tools allow consumers to make side-by-side comparisons, view best and worst MPG lists
Calculate gallons and dollars saved due to better fuel economy, estimate, record, and track their own fuel economies.
