We all need to remember to Turn Off our cars whenever we are stopped. Just buckle up and get ready before you turn on the motor. Turn off your motor as soon as you’re parked — no reading email, listening to the radio, and definitely no sleeping in your car with the motor running (no, I’m not kidding). If you have to wait for someone while they run in the store, just turn it off. If it’s hot, go inside or sit in the shade and relax. We can all get better at reducing our air pollution.
