According to the Moody Air Force Base Instruction 31-204, “privately owned vehicles will not be left unattended with the ignition key in the vehicle or with the engine running.” Idling occurs when an engine is running while a vehicle is not in motion. When not actively driving, people idle their cars to either warm up the engine before driving or to deter possible wear and tear on the engine in situations that require frequent restarting. Engines warm twice as quickly when the vehicle is driven. According to the Hinkle Charitable Foundation, cutting down the action of idling can improve an individual’s car performance, save them money and reduce emitted hazardous fumes. For more information, call the 23d Wing Safety Office at 229-257-4680. (U.S. Air Force photo illustration by Airman 1st Class Greg Nash/Released)
