This summer, the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments ( COG ) held a driver recognition program to honor truck and bus drivers and their companies for reducing engine idling.
Using “street teams” of COG , American Bus Association and state government staff, thousands of promotional campaign items were distributed. The campaign resulted in 200 drivers being nominated, from which seven winners were selected.
The program is part of the regional Diesel Anti-Idling Campaign, which raises awareness among drivers and businesses of the economic and environmental benefits of turning off engines instead of idling. Learn more about the campaign at “Turn Your Engines Off.”
