Junior Girl Scout Troop 61842
Idle No More
Girl Scout Troop 61842, 5th graders at Oak Knoll Elementary School in Menlo Park, staged a no-idling campaign. They paraded down the pickup line after school with signs and educational handouts to teach drivers to turn off their cars rather than leave the engines running for more than 10 seconds. They gave 4 reasons to stop idling: it saves money, it may save you a ticket, it helps the planet, and it’s better for your car. They hope the drivers got the message!
