Don’t be fuelish!

Turn off your engine and help the Council to tackle climate change with our guide to preventing vehicle idling.

Did you know that idling is illegal? Idling means leaving a vehicle’s engine running while it is stationary. While this is often because of everyday traffic, there are some instances – such as waiting for children outside schools and sitting in total gridlock – when idling is not necessary and should be avoided.

ACT NOW! Help the Council to tackle climate change to ensure a more sustainable future for North Ayrshire! Read the guide here for safer alternatives to idling and turn off your engine when you can.

Remember, vehicle idling is an offence against Road Traffic (Vehicle Emissions) (Fixed Penalty) (Scotland) Regulations 2003. You may be issued with a fixed penalty notice if you idle your engine unnecessarily.
