Efforts are focused on expanding the adoption of anti-idling ordinances and policies, researching new technologies, and promoting various idle reduction campaigns across the region.
Idling Restrictions in North Central Texas
Ten counties in North Central Texas currently violate the federal air quality standard for the pollutant ozone. To meet these standards, the region must address major contributing factors to emissions from vehicles. The region’s goal is to come into compliance for ozone as early as possible to ensure the greatest quality of life for all residents in the area.
