Idling and Air Quality
The Idling Control By-law limits idling to no more than one (1) minute in a 60-minute period.
Vehicle emissions are a contributing factor in climate change. By reducing unnecessary idling to just one minute, we are helping to improve the quality of the air in Toronto. It’s one simple way that we can all help to keep our air clean.
The City also encourages residents to consider alternative methods of transportation such as walking, cycling and public transit to help improve air quality.
For further information about issuing a complaint, by-law compliance or by-law enforcement, you may contact the Permit Parking office.
