Idle Free Has Big Impact

Ever wonder if it’s worth it, to turn off your car while waiting? Do you think your new habit of turning off in the car rider line doesn’t make a difference?

Being Idle Free does make a difference, and it’s big.

Eliminating unnecessary idling by personal vehicles would be equivalent in emissions reductions to taking five million vehicles off the road, according to an article in The Environmental Magazine.

Americans waste six million gallons of fuel by idling each year. Everyone who makes the pledge to turn the key and be idle free moves us closer to a cleaner, more efficient fleet. Switching to electric or hybrid vehicles also works in our favor.
