Has the institution adopted a policy prohibiting idling?:
A brief description of the policy:
Except under emergency situations, the engine of all University vehicles shall be turned off when the vehicle is not actively being driven for a period of 30 seconds or more unless an idling engine is essential for the performance of the work at hand (e.g. the operation of a lift gate). Trucks with refrigerator units may leave the refrigerator unit engine running if necessary.
This policy applies to all the vehicles of any contractor performing work on campus.
