Did You Know?

Under Connecticut law it is now illegal for any vehicle to idle for more than three-minutes.  There are exemptions, such as for defrosting during winter weather, or for service vehicles and certain health conditions.  Visit this Department of Energy and Environmental Protection website for information on what you can do to reduce idling, save fuel, and improve air quality.
