Idling gets you nowhere and can be costly.

Climate Impacts

Cars produce toxic tailpipe emissions – right at the level where kids breathe.

The chemicals from car exhaust are harmful and can make asthma and other respiratory conditions worse.

Air toxics at schools go up during the afternoon when parents pick up their kids.

Tailpipe exhaust contains pollutants that produce greenhouse gases.

Greenhouse gases from transportation are the #1 source of climate change causing emissions.

A typical motorist who drives 13,000 miles per year emits about 4.5 tons of CO2 per year – that’s 3X the weight of your car!
