Re: So who's going to enforce it?

I don't think this law is aimed at drivers who are stationary (not parked) at traffic lights. Rather, it is intended to stop couriers (including postmen) leaving their engines running whilst they are making a delivery. And parents on the afternoon school run, poisoning the air their offspring are about to breathe!

But there has to be some common sense; imagine if the bin lorries switched off every time they stopped to collect the waste - there's more than enough chaos now!
