Potential $38 fine for those who idle more than two minutes
In an effort to stop unnecessary idling, the Town of Ajax wants you to kick the idling habit and is promoting three anti-idling initiatives through the Every Minute Counts campaign:
- An anti-idling bylaw
- A community education program
- Idle free zones.
On September 14, 2009 Ajax Council approved an anti-idling bylaw. The bylaw limits the idling of vehicles engines to less than two minutes. The bylaw also sets out a fine of $38.00 for those that don’t adhere to the limit. SOURCE
