Idle Free Fact Sheet
Addressing an Idling Vehicle
Education is a vital part of being an idle-free city. If you are able to talk to the owner of an idling vehicle, please ask them to turn off their vehicle until they are ready to drive.
- Print this handout to share (with a smile!) when addressing an idling vehicle operator.
- Here is a sample conversation you can use to kindly ask the operator of an idling vehicle to “turn your key, be idle free.”
- To request “turn your key, be idle free” window decals, please email SLCgreen@slcgov.com.
