Save money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions this spring by turning your engine off if parked for more than three minutes during warm weather (between 0°C and 30°C).
If you are using a drive-thru, picking-up someone from school or running a quick errand, turn off your engine. Idling for 10 seconds uses more fuel than turning off and restarting your engine.
If every resident could reduce idling by one minute every day, in one year we could eliminate enough greenhouse gas emissions to fill 64 NHL-size hockey rinks!
What more can you do to save money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions?
