The city has recently received numerous resident concerns regarding the idling of vehicles in school zones while parents are either picking up or dropping of kids for school.
Please do not leave your car running while you drop off or pick up your children.
Not only is idling a violation under the traffic bylaw 5870 Section 12.15.1 it also carries a fine of $75.00 and it is not good for the Earth either.
Here is the official bylaw:
No person shall cause or permit a vehicle to idle at any one time:
a) For more than three minutes unless queued with stopped traffic in the travel portion of the street;
or b) While unattended.
