“When truck and bus drivers turn off their engines when they’re not needed, they do more than avoid fines and cut fuel costs,” says Glen Kedzie, ATA’s vice president and environmental affairs. “They take an important and easy step toward improving air quality.”

Other components of the ATA sustainability plan include:
• Federal laws requiring trucks to have speed governors set at 65 mph or below and a national speed limit of 65 mph for all vehicles;
• Allowing more productive truck weights and combinations, which safely improve fuel economy;
• Expansion of the EPA SmartWay Transportation program, which works to reduce greenhouse gases and save fuel;
• Reducing idling by updating the interstate system and reducing traffic
congestion; and
• Developing fuel economy standards for commercial vehicles.
