Wolfville Goes Idle-Free!
Wolfville municipality has become the second municipality in Nova Scotia to implement an Idle-Free Bylaw. The first municipality to go Idle-Free was Kentville, implementing their idling bylaw in 2008. Wolfvilles “Idling Control Bylaw” (Bylaw 93), states that “no person shall cause or permit a vehicle to idle for more than three consecutive minutes in a sixty minute period.” Exemptions include transit vehicles picking up or letting off passengers, emergency vehicles, and work vehicles that require the engine to run for operating purposes (for example a bucket truck). To view the complete bylaw follow this link and download the pdf entitled “93 – Idling Control Bylaw” Clean Nova Scotia and DriveWiser congratulate and thank Wolfville for taking this important step towards reducing pollution and greenhouse gases by banning idling in the municipality.
