Safety Tip: Don't let your car idle unattended

While letting your car warm up this winter, please do not leave your vehicle unattended. Leaving your car or truck running with the keys in it gives would-be thieves an opportunity to steal your vehicle. Even while a person is in the vehicle, city code prohibits letting your car idle for longer than 15 minutes.
