Pledge to Turn Off Your Car Instead of Idling

Do It

Did you know that idling a car for more than 10 seconds wastes more fuel than turning it off and restarting it? Every day, U.S. drivers needlessly idle their cars wasting 3.8 million gallons of gas--that's like 5 Olympic-size swimming pools full of fuel!

Idling pollutes the air, wastes gas and money, and is actually illegal in many places. But most of us don't even think about it. The next time you're going to be idling for more than 10 seconds, just turn the key. It's pretty easy once you get into the habit. (But be safe...don't turn your car off in traffic.)
