50% OF UTAH’S AIR POLLUTION IS FROM VEHICLES…

CHILDREN ARE MORE VULNERABLE…

IDLING GETS ZERO MILES PER GALLON...

One hour of idling burns one gallon of gasoline.  Idling is expensive and hard on your engine. 

SPREAD THE WORD…

If 1,000 Midvale residents took the pledge, we could keep a hundred tons of carbon out of the atmosphere; a small drop in the great bucket but an immediate one. Talk to your family, friends, and neighbors about the benefits of reduced idling.
