    Houston City Council voted unanimously on November 4 to adopt an anti-idling ordinance, which prohibits vehicles with a gross weight rating of more than 14,000 pounds from being allowed to idle for more than five minutes when not in motion. 

    The ordinance excludes military, law enforcement, and METRO vehicles used for public health and safety purposes, as well as those being actively loaded or unloaded. 

    Many thanks to City of Houston Sustainability Director Laura Spanjian, Council Member Dwight Boykins, Museum Park Super Neighborhood, Air Alliance Houston and all who helped made this landmark City Council action a reality.


    It’s a good day for clean air in Houston Texas!
