Major issues[edit]

This article doesn't lead by saying what idle reduction is, it just sort of wanders through the topic, barely touching on it near the end. I would have expected it to list idle reduction techs in the lead, and why they matter in later sections. In the end it barely explains the topic at all.

Suggest merge[edit]

These two articles Idle reduction and Anti-idling appear to be discussing the same topic. They could usefully be merged and any non-redundant content would strengthen the resulting article. --Wtshymanski (talk) 19:31, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

  • Support merge I can't see the distinction and it would seem to give a stronger article. Andy Dingley (talk) 15:59, 20 May 2014 (UTC)
Mind you, we do have a process of annotation for recording a merge and (yet again!) that doesn't seem to have been happening here. Andy Dingley (talk) 16:00, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

UK legislation[edit]

Although the UK has an anti-idling law [1] only a few local authorities have publicised it. Dudley MBC is one of them and their web page [2] gives the impression that the law applies on all public highways. I think it actually only applies in an Air quality management area. Can anyone clarify this? Biscuittin (talk) 11:52, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

For example, Reading BC's web page on "air quality" contains almost no information [3]. Biscuittin (talk) 12:05, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
