From AirAlliance enewsletter I hadn't heard of this before Houston Anti-Idling Ordinance Petition Idling from diesel engines creates air pollution and health risks all over the city. From the scores of trucks lined up in neighborhoods around the ship channel to school buses waiting to bring our children home for the day, it is safe to say that all of us are adversely affected by this issue. Help Air Alliance Houston gain traction on an Anti-Idling Ordinance in Houston by signing the petition today A little info on AirAlliance Air Alliance Houston wants clean air so our economy, quality of life, and children can thrive.
