New Brunswick Bans Idling in Government Vehicle Fleet

June 20, 2007

FREDERICTON, NEW BRUNSWICK –The New Brunswick government has told its employees that if the Canadian province’s 800 vehicles are not in motion, the motors shouldn’t be running, according to CBC News. Vehicle tailpipes spew out greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming. From now on, people driving government cars should idle for no more than five minutes for every hour of driving.

The biggest impact of the anti-idling policy might be felt at restaurant drive-throughs, the report said.
