Vehicle Idling

Vehicle idling occurs at our schools when children are dropped off and picked up. Large numbers of idling vehicles greatly increase the presence of toxic chemicals such as nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxides, and volatile organic compounds.  By turning off our engines in school zones, we can drastically decrease the toxic chemicals that we release near our children.  Please join us in creating a healthier environment.
