It wastes and wastes and gives you nothing in return
Hundreds of dollars for small cars and vans and thousands of dollars for trucks.
Pollutes the Atmosphere
Your exhaust, together with everyone else's, is destroying the air you breathe.
Shortens Engine Life
If your engine is running and you are going nowhere, what sense does that make? None, it just wears out the engine quicker.
Burns Up Money
Fuel costs money, so going nowhere costs fuel and money.
"Turn it off" when your vehicle isn't going anywhere — except when stopped in traffic.
For trucks, use the latest automatic shut-off devices or install other equipment to run your cab heater and air conditioner in the most economical way.
Ensure your vehicle is well maintained so you don't have the excuse, "if I turn it off, it won't start again."
