No Idling Pledge for Parents and Community Members

 Idling is  Unhealthy, Illegal and Expensive! Read more

We recognize that emissions from idling cars pose a threat to our children’s health and that of our community’s air quality. We pledge to protect the health and well being of our children and our community.

To protect our children and our community from harmful vehicle emissions, we voluntarily pledge: 

•to turn off engines while waiting to pick up and drop off children and at any other time that the vehicle is not moving for more than 3 minutes

•to spread the word to family and friends to encourage others to eliminate unnecessary idling

Please sign the pledge

If you have children attending school in East Brunswick,  your school could earn "green points" for every pledge signed.
