Village Board Adopts Idling Fine/At the August 12th Village Board meeting, the Board adopted a $35 fine for anyone found to be idling a vehicle in excess of three minutes. Westchester County adopted an anti-idling law in 2009 which restricts the time, place and manner in which vehicles are allowed to idle. As such, the Village Manager has introduced an amendment to the Vehicle & Traffic section of the Village Code to prohibit idling in excess of three minutes whenever the air temperature is above 32 degrees Fahrenheit. The idling law applies to any vehicle found to be parked, standing or stopped, as these words are defined in the Vehicle & Traffic Law of New York State. Emergency vehicles are exempt from the provisions of the idling law. The provisions of the law will take effect on September 29, 2019. Until that time, police officers and parking enforcement officers will be issuing warnings to vehicles found violating the idling law.
