Idling Ordinance and Education
During the winter months Salt Lake City has some of the worst air quality in the nation. Just as Summit County residents and visitors move across the county boundaries so does the particulate matter that makes up the dangerous air pollution in the valley. We're responsible for generating the same pollution up here, we just don't see the same accumulation yet due to our different geographic and climatic conditions.
Let's keep our mountain air clean and healthy! Please reduce idling your vehicle and encourage others to reduce their idling times as well.
Explore the tabs below to read more about the Summit County ordinance and how you can help to keep our air pristine.
Education is key for our community to understand the impacts of idling. This ordinance effects unincorporated sections of Summit County. Park City has their own idling ordinances.
If you have the opportunity to speak with an idling driver below are some educational resources to help you!
