Sherbrooke adopts anti-idling bylaw
Leaving your car engine running while you run out to do a quick errand just became a little pricier for some drivers in the Eastern Townships. Over the holidays, Sherbrooke joined 65 other municipalities across the province with anti-idling bylaws that aim to cut down on car emissions. Drivers must now keep their idling down to three minutes per hour, or risk a fine starting at $150.
Our Eastern Townships reporter Sarah Rogers spoke to city councillor David Price in the borough of Lennoxville, about how drivers are warming up to the bylaw.
