Idling releases pollutants that can harm human health and the environment. Limit warm-up idling to 30 seconds, even in cold weather. Turn off your engine if you expect to be stopped for more than 30 seconds (except in traffic). Avoid drive-through windows (banks, pharmacies and fast-food restaurants). Park and go inside. Carpool, walk, bike or take the bus whenever possible. It's a myth that frequent restarting is harder on the engine and wastes more fuel than idling and that engines need to warm up by idling, especially in cold weather.
