New penalties for Vt. drivers who leave their cars idling

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

Starting Monday Vermonters will face fines if they leave their cars idling longer than five minutes.

The new law was passed a year ago, but just takes effect this month. It's aimed at reducing vehicle emissions. It limits the idling of vehicles to five minutes in any 60-minute period. Fines start at $10 and rise to $50 and $100 for subsequent violations.

Now, there are plenty of exceptions, including defrosting your windshield and if your car is parked on private property.
