Idle Free Linn

Idle Free Linn is dedicated to reducing vehicle idling throughout Linn County at schools, businesses, municipalities, and personal vehicles.  Idle reduction saves money and improves air quality. 

Follow the 10-Second Rule:  Turn off your engine if you will be waiting more than 10 seconds.  

Idling vehicles emit air pollution, which in turn impacts the health of Linn County residents.  Fine particles and air toxics from idling can irritate lungs and may lead to heart problems later on.  For more information on the health issues associated with air pollution, click on the tab below.  Additionally, idling is a waste of gas and money.
