Leaving your engine running could leave you £20 worse off

Leaving an engine idling is an offence under section 42 of the Road Traffic Act 1988.
The Act enforces rule 123 of the Highway Code, which states: "You must not leave a vehicle's engine running unnecessarily while that vehicle is stationary on a public road."
Doing this can incur a £20 fixed-penalty fine under the Road Traffic (Vehicle Emissions) Regulations 2002.
