Resolve to go idle-free in 2024!!!

Unnecessary vehicle idling wastes four million gallons of fuel in the US every day… and harms human health and the planet. Turn off your engine – whether waiting for the bridge to open, outside school, or in the drive-through! HOT TIP: When heading out, check your phone before you turn your car on.
