Newark installs first-ever anti-idling sign

Living next to a popular restaurant in the Ironbound, this issue in particular is near and dear to my heart. Cars, trucks and ambulances are frequently idling outside our apartment windows, which is great for foot traffic on our block, but not so great for noise.

(Apparently there’s an exception to the NJ three-minute idling limit statute for vehicles “actively performing” emergency services, but I wonder if stopping for lunch fits that definition?)
