Engine Off North Texas Idling Reporting Form

How To Report an Idling Vehicle 

People can take an active role in improving regional air quality by reporting idling vehicles anonymously. Citizens can easily report a vehicle online or by phone.  If reported, a letter will be mailed to the registered owner of the idling vehicle stating that his/her vehicle was anonymously reported for idling.  Information on local idling rules, benefits of not idling, as well as possible funding opportunities to aid in the purchase of idle reduction technologies will be included.  In addition, the information reported may also be shared with local law enforcement agencies to inform them of possible areas of frequent idling occurrences. 

Cities and counties can then use these reports to help determine target areas for education and enforcement.
