NYPD doesn't enforce idling law
From CBS New York:
Engine exhaust from cars, trucks and buses has been linked to cancer, strokes and New York City’s high rate of childhood asthma.
The city has tough laws to prevent drivers who sit with their vehicles running, but, as CBS2′s Don Dahler has seen, some say it’s no more than an idle threat, because it’s rarely enforced.
When school lets out, scenes of drivers, parked and idling as they wait to take kids home, are playing out all over the city.
