At the end of the school day, the buses arrive and wait right next to the parents and guardians for 10 to 30 minutes. Some get onto the bus and some walk home, but the fumes on the sidewalk have been heavy for years. Now the buses shut off the engines, thankfully. This new ordinance has made a huge improvement to our quality of life.
- It is wise to push and prohibit the needless idling of other heavy duty diesel vehicles, including delivery trucks, garbage trucks, 18-wheelers, PAT buses, and tour buses.
