Many parents who claim to care about the air their children breathe are only offering lip service to the conversation. Their actions speak louder than words.
To witness my point, just go to an elementary or junior high school when class gets out. You will see dozens of caring parents sitting in their cars with the engines idling. Many of them arrive 10 or 15 minutes before school lets out and idle the whole time.
Their own comfort seems to be of more concern to them than the exhaust they are spewing into the air their children breathe.
We shouldn’t have to have a law prohibiting idling cars. Isn’t it just common sense? That being said, maybe we do need a law.
