Letting your vehicle’s engine run while stopped in traffic, or waiting for a train to cross the railway tracks, is a waste of fuel, not to mention harmful to the environment. That’s why, to encourage drivers to turn off their engines when the car isn’t running, the Idle-Free BC initiative was created years ago.

Industry experts think the compact crossover segment will replace the compact car class as the most popular with Canadian new car buyers sooner rather than later.
