new law for ny. no more idle than 3 min

what kind of shit are they pulling now. This is a crazy law. people gonna get a lot of tickets in the winter time. Laws are starting to suck. I guess we dont have freedom in america. We are gonna be government owned someday. I dont know about everyone here but its been talked alot on here about idling your car in winter for 1 or 2 min but if i have to shovel my ass out of snow that is 2 or more and my car is burried in the white shit u know the car idles longer to clear off windows and doors and warm up engine so the car can crawl to work in the morning. They should unpass this law. anyway just writing to give the nyers a heads up on this stupid law.

it is an effort to cut greenhouse emmissions and lower the consumption of fosil fuels.

It is claimed that all you need to warm your engine up is 2 minutes on a cold morning and then drive reasonalbly. it may not be enough to clear the windows of frost and snow but I believe that is why the good lord made ice/snow scrappers.

going to keep law enforcement busy just think a person could get a job as an "idle cop"

More than likely its for NYC not the entire state since there's quite a bit of vehicles in the city. Got a link to any info on that law? I'd like to read into it and see what the wording is like.

I found this from 2003:
http://www.oag.state.ny.us/press/200...jun20a_03.html
Here's an excerpt of it:

To counter the harm caused by diesel exhaust, state law provides that trucks and buses with diesel engines may not idle for more than five consecutive minutes, except when powering an auxiliary function such as loading or unloading cargo or mixing concrete required for maintenance, or when performing emergency services. Under New York City law, trucks and buses with any kind of engine that are not legally authorized emergency vehicles may not idle for more than three consecutive minutes, except when powering a loading, unloading or processing device.

Its meant for heavy equipment like trucks and buses. Unless there's something else out there they are proposing.

they have this law in Ontario. It's a joke as it's not enforced. In winter cars are allowed to idle if the temp is below 0 (Celsius) in order to run your heater and in the summer if the temp is above 30 (celsius) in order to run your A/C.

that said though, there are tons of cars lined up at Mcdonalds or Tim Horton's drive thrus just sitting there idling while waiting for there food and coffees.

Impossible to enforce

Just how would they enforce this for cars? Spend millions hiring "idle cops"? Maybe they will incorporate idle time into PCMs like they do on big trucks and make you file a "idle time report" to the police dept every year. Gimme a break.

There are alot of states that dont allow semi's to idle all night at truck stops. They have auxillary power units on most now that give the cab heat and a/c when the engine isnt running. Thats if the driver or company can afford to install one on their trucks ($5-6000). At some truck stops, you can hook up to their heating/a/c system for like $3.00/hour thru your cab window.

I think the rule in Ontario is 5 mins. Ottawa just passed a law to make it 3 mins.

Dosen't bother me. How will they enforce it? It's impossible. If I use my car starter to start it up in the winter and some enforcement *tool* just happens to drive by and start timing me, I'll simply stop the car after a couple mins and restart it again.

There's so many holes in this that nobody needs to worry.

I only takes a few mins of idle to get the juices going. The best way to defrost your windows is to blast defrost and drive. If that doesn't suit any, do as us Canadians do, and plug your car in! grab a block heater and batery blanket :p

You can always run a small electric heater to warm your car overnight if you must

This is why the governments are idiots.

If every household plugs in their block heaters + an auxilliary heater overnight, that's like 1500 watts of power for 10 hours! Way more green house gas (depends on powerplant) overall than 5 minutes of idle.

In a free world, you should be able to idle as long as you want, provided that you're buying legal gasoline which contains a sh*tload of government taxes that they can do whatever they want with.
