    COLD SHOCK: Warming up your car illegal!

    Even the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is getting into the war on “puffing.”
    It’s not thefts that bother the EPA. It’s global warming. The EPA hasn’t started issuing
    fines yet. But the agency is issuing warnings about how the practice hurts fuel economy and the environment.

    It's already illegal for trucks to do that and they are getting ticketed in some states.

    Then wouldn't outlaw remote start?

    I used to work for AAA in KY in bloody hot summer heat and humidity. They always told us to shut the trucks off when not in them, but when it's that hot and your working over a hot engine or disgustingly hot cement you want the truck ice cold when you get back in. Opposite goes for the winter.

    Don't even give half a rat's *** about anything the criminal EPA says.

    Must be nice to have the power to create arbitrary rules and impose fines for infractions with virtually no oversight.

    Its easy to make arbitrary "common sense" rules when you live in sunny California where the weather never gets cold. Drive a diesel or any vehicle for the matter where the weather is freezing for weeks or months on end and that kind of logic looks pretty hazy out of an ice-encrusted windshield.

    The government is ALL about Control, nothing more nothing less. Doesn't matter what agency/cabinet to make themselves "relevant" they have to "ACT" as socialist.

    The BleuJean (aka 4J) School District already has "No motor Idleing" signs in the pick up zones...
    Figure that one out :( If your in a line of cars, how do you drive, if the car is not in the "Go" condition????
    Buses are also ~supposed~ to abide by this, but I have seen many that do not. I am waiting for the EPA directive (Communist soon to a City near you)...

    Where we must breathe on opposite days, like the draught rules for watering your lawn, even address numbers on even dates, odd address numbers on Odd Dates.

    Ever been on an Odd Date? Oh, different thread......

    This same kind of sign is at the PDX cell phone waiting area. I just ignore it.

    fok that....this crap has gotten completely out of control. It's my new year's resolution be a "carbon bigfoot / sasquatch" and implement counter measures that'll neutralize the tree hugging contributions of at least 20 tree huggers...this summer I might just idle my car at work so the AC keeps the interior at a nice 60 deg F. for me when I get off work...may have to drive across the street and top off the tank at lunch, but it's the thought that counts...

    When I sit back and wonder what the EPA leaders look like , I imagine a really nerdy dude, that couldn't land some split tail as a young man.
    You know, head in the toilet in junior high.
