Fulton County Fights Smog With “No Idling” Policy | Print |

 

Fulton County Fights Smog With “No Idling” Policy
As metro Atlanta’s annual smog season begins, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners is taking steps to reduce air pollution from county vehicles. The Board recently adopted a “no idling” policy that directs drivers of Fulton County’s fleet vehicles to turn off their engines , instead of allowing them to idle.

Vendors making deliveries to Fulton County facilities will also be asked to turn off their vehicles while they are at loading docks.

The new measure may also result in reduced fuel usage, with corresponding cost savings.
Fulton County is an active partner of the Clean Air Campaign, which estimates that an engine that idles for 10 minutes yields 90 grams of pollutants.  Ozone and particle pollutants have been linked to increased rates of respiratory and cardiovascular illness.

The “no idling” policy was coordinated by the Fulton County Green Team in 2007 to develop responses to environmental issues in Fulton County operations.
