Anti-Idling Campaign Communicates Directly with Bus and Truck Drivers

Sep 28, 2011

This summer, COG coordinated a Driver Recognition Program to honor truck and bus drivers and their companies for reducing engine idling. Using 'street teams' of COG, American Bus Association, and state government staff, thousands of promotional campaign items were distributed, 200 drivers were nominated, and seven winners were selected. The program is part of the regional Diesel Anti-Idling Campaign, which raises awareness among drivers and businesses of the economic and environmental benefits of turning off engines instead of idling.
