Because Cops Don't Have Enough To Do

The Minneapolis City Council decided to limit non-traffic vehicle idling to 3 minutes. James Lileks has some objections......

You’re warming up the car in the winter, remember you forgot something on the kitchen table, but you don’t dare go get it because the car’s been idling for 2 minutes and 37 seconds, and you don’t want to break the law. There could be an unmarked squad car across the alley with one of those new radar stopwatches. So you turn off the car, wait a few seconds, then turn it on again. Does that count?
