For a second time around, those who choose not to idle their vehicles are in for a sweet surprise in Fort Nelson.

The so-called ‘idle fairy’ will be leaving treats with a thank you note on the windshields of non-idling parked vehicles for the rest of the month.

The main objective of it being to encourage people to cut back on their idling – which the Northern Rockies Regional Municipality asserts is both a waste fuel and releases CO2 emissions.

The Idle-Free October cause is one the Regional Municipality says they support, in conjunction with their Community Energy Management Plan.

The common places they see idled vehicles, the Regional Municipality says, are in the drive-thru, in a parking lot as the driver has run into a store, in construction zones, or at home just being warmed up in the winter.

A goal of 15% per individual reduction by 2030 has been set by the Regional Municipality.
