The City is also asking local motorists to avoid unnecessary idling, especially while waiting at a train crossing. Please help keep our air clean by turning off your engine.
- Turn off engine while waiting at a train crossing and if parked for more than 60 seconds.
- Drive the vehicle to warm it up.
- Do not start the vehicle until all passengers are seated and buckled in.
