    None of the idling around stuff! And yes, the Polizei were known to stop and "remind" folks of that statute.

    Of course, this is the same country that didn't go to unleaded gasoline till the mid-eighties.
    Yeah, this was the same country that converted how many millions of people into carbon during WWII?

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    Well, I wasn't going to quite go into Carbon Country (because, after all, most of the Carbon Generators were located in Poland or otherwise outside the Fatherland) but since you mention it...

    What happened to all that carbon? Is it the source of a lot of Al Bore's discomfiture?

    We are still getting global warming here...woke up to more, kept floating out of the sky most of the day.

    Had to scrap the stuff off the car this morning.

    Btw, we are about 15 degrees below average for this time of the year.

    From wiki...

    Various states and localities have passed laws pertaining to idling. Some of the laws are more strict and stringent than others. Thirty-one states currently have some sort of existing regulations pertaining to anti-idling. Of these states, California has the most codes and regulations. The California Air Resources Board has enacted numerous laws that regulate idling in the state.
