WUSTL works to eliminate motor vehicle idling on Danforth Campus

The Washington University Police Department and Parking and Transportation Services are partnering to increase awareness on campus about the importance of eliminating vehicle idling on the Danforth Campus.

Motor vehicle idling endangers public health, pollutes the environment and wastes both fuel and money.

This summer, WUSTL will install “No Idling” signs at loading docks, bus stops and other key locations on campus.

Students and faculty associated with the School of Law’s Interdisciplinary Environmental Clinic are working with Grace Hill Settlement House to inform the public about the benefits of idle reduction and encourage compliance with idle reduction laws.

The City of St. Louis, St. Louis County and the State of Missouri all have adopted laws and regulations that limit idling by motor vehicles.
