Does this mean that all buses will have to turn their engine off at every bus stop ?

I can see why this law is difficult to enforce, that's most probably why they want to handover the responsibility to the general public, get us all to do the leg work for them.

The enforcers can then sit and wait for the video uploads to come rolling in, then dish-out the fines via the registration plates being filmed.

Brilliant idea really...

Certainly not against reporting all you've mentioned, after all I've never seen queues of people doing any of that. My point was it may be easy to walk down any queue of traffic with a camera and possibly make a living out of it by informing the relevant authority without said authority having to 'police' it themselves.

I think it is more associated with those who sit outside shops or houses waiting on people, taxis on a break. I always thought there was a guide of something like more than 3 minutes.

Ref another post earlier about mpg, and starter wear, whilst starter wear is going to be an obvious issue, a more immediate issue will be battery wear, especially sitting in traffic with the lights, and other electrical items on.

Particularly aimed outside school gates where the children are breathing in the toxic air, the next importance would be taxi ranks, shops as you say.

shouldnt be cars outside school gates! Stop, get out walk to or from school. Most accidents around schools here involving pupils and vehicles apparently have obstructed views of the colliding vehicle as a factor. Dropping off with the engine running, I have no problem with, sitting there with the engine running for 10-15 minutes at the pillar of the gate so your little cherub does not have to walk the length of themselves

But that is an argument and problem to solve by cutting wiring looms for another discussion.

thank you for clarifying.
I'm sure at some point most if not all of us have left an engine idling sometimes deliberate and sometimes by accident. I'd prefer to see education used first, someone walking along the line of cars perhaps handing out a leaflet, a word in the drivers ear, media broadcasts.
Is an engine considered to be idling when stationary in a traffic jam?

Believe it or not Steve, the buses on my routes do exactly that! Some have the stop-start technology and others some kind of dual traction, electric or diesel, where the diesel engine stops when the bus is stationary and it moves off under electric power for a short distance.
