Letter to the Editor: Idling Engines Cause Pollution

letter to the editor
This is a letter to the editor from Susan Levine:
The good weather is here and with it the number of cars idling with their motors and air conditioning running has increased dramatically.

People everywhere in the Village are talking on the phone while sitting in their cars.. AC on, staying cool with the engine running, unconcerned that their engines are polluting our air sometimes for long periods of time.

The U.S. Energy Department just reported that eliminating idling of personal vehicles would be the same as taking five million cars off the road.

If you are in your car and need to stop driving to make a call, turn off the engine and open all your car windows or go into a store that has air conditioning and make your calls. Starbucks or CVS are good choices.

Polluting the air is not a good choice.
