Law makes it illegal to leave car idling

It’s now illegal to idle your car for more than five minutes during a one-hour period in Vermont.

The law is meant to cut down on carbon emissions and save fuel. Violators will receive a $10 ticket for the first offense, $50 for the second and $100 for the third.

There are exceptions. Police, fire and other emergency vehicles do not have to adhere to the rule.
