So that’s why….

No idling!

I finally have an answer as to why everyone turns off their engines at stoplights. It’s not to save gas (which seemed like it wouldn’t). It’s to lower emissions. Or so I suppose, based on this amusing sign outside Korakuen Park in Okayama. It exhorts you to not idle, and to stop your engine … and features a car cutely covering its rear, lest some noxious fumes escape.
