Idling Rules and Regulations

Idling rules and regulations depend on where you are and whether your fleet has adopted a Clean Fleet Policy.  Being aware of local idling rules and regulations can keep you from getting an idling citation or worse, a fine.  You can learn more about what areas restrict idling by visiting Engine Off North Texas.  To get more information about the Clean Fleet Policy, visit the Clean Fleet website
