    apparently the enforcement officers are allowing 2 minutes of idle before asking the driver to switch off , if they refuse then they will be ticketed

    In New York, the street furniture's threat to the idling of one's IC engine tells of a $2000 fine.

    Generally I am in favour of this. One of the worst offenders is mothers outside schools waiting for their kids, on the mobile phone.

    you could not make it up...................................
    " Sir, i have observed you sitting in your car for the last 2 mins with the engine at idle, i now require you to turn your engine off or i will issue you a fixed penalty notice"
    "But officer, i cannot turn it off, not now"
    "Sir turn it off now please"
    "ok"

    30 minuets later the officer returns

    "Sir, why are you still here, i will have to issue a parking ticket"
    "Officer, you told me to turn my engine off, it was just started after a flat battery by the AA, its now flat again and i am waiting for them to come back out"

    ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????
