It's Your Turn - Turn It Off

VEHICLE IDLING AT SCHOOLS

Air monitoring at schools typically finds elevated levels of toxins during pick-up times. The source — exhaust from idling vehicles — is linked to increases in asthma, allergies, heart and lung disease and even cancer. Children are especially at risk because their lungs are still developing and they inhale more air per pound of body weight.


Do your part to keep your kids and their classmates healthy: If you'll be waiting more than 10 seconds, turn off your engine. This simple step can dramatically reduce children's exposure to pollutants, save a little money, and help the environment.


Ready to clear the air? Take our pledge to Turn It Off.
