Idle Free Philly, helping you breathe easier

Philadelphia is a hard place to live if you have asthma.  That’s why Next Great City recommended that the city install modern pollution-control devices on older city vehicles.  We are pleased that the city has made significant strides in implementing this recommendation. 
But there is more that can be done to help Philadelphians breathe easier, and you can be a part of it.  Unnecessary idling vehicles not only waste fuel, but they also pollute the air that we breathe.  Idle Free Philly, a project of the Clean Air Council, empowers citizens to combat unnecessary idling by giving residents a tool to report problems in their neighborhoods to city officials.  Using a SeeClickFix structure, IdleFreePhilly.org enables you to identify idling hot spots so that city officials can target their enforcement.
