Timer on, engines off -- at all signals

Timer on, engines off -- at all signals

Install timers at every traffic signal in the city, so that people can turn their engines off while waiting.

Why is this important?

People, including traffic police, inhale a lot more vehicular emissions while waiting at the signal. If they know how long they will be waiting for, they can take a decision to turn off their engines to make a difference to the quality of air they are breathing.
