Kentville, N.S., first town in Atlantic Canada to ban vehicle idling print this article
THE CANADIAN PRESS

KENTVILLE, N.S. Kentville is the first municipality in Atlantic Canada to pass a bylaw banning the idling of motor vehicles within its boundaries.
A similar bylaw is in place in more than four dozen other places across the country.
The new law, passed this week, makes it illegal to leave a motor vehicle idling for more than three minutes in town.
Exceptions include emergency vehicles on a call, armoured cars, vehicles involved in work in which a running engine is required to provide power for auxiliary equipment.
Drivers are also allowed to idle their vehicles to provide power or heat for defogging or de-icing a windshield when no reasonable alternative is available.
Penalties range from a minimum fine of $150 to a maximum of $10,000.
Coun. Eric Bolland said Thursday that council is optimistic that residents and visitors will embrace the anti-idling ethic.
