Wellesley Green Schools, with support from the Wellesley Police Department, realizes this is a tough time of year to discuss the State of Massachusetts’ no Idling law but there are many reasons TO talk about it.

These include our children, our health, finances, gas consumption, penalties, car maintenance, air pollution, climate change and much more.

Wellesley Green Schools is launching this “Turn Your Key, Be Idle Free” Campaign to educate our community that beyond the State law of not idling, there are millions of reasons why it is important to reduce idling in Wellesley.

Take a look at this and you will be surprised at what you will learn.
