Dallas police will enforce local idling reg in GATS parking lots

| 8/20/2008

If you’re heading to the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas this week, you should be able to find plenty of parking. Be careful, though, how long you let your truck idle.

Show organizers say there is free overnight parking at the Reunion Arena Parking lot adjacent to the Dallas Convention Center. The gates open at 8 a.m. Thursday morning, Aug. 21. Rest rooms, 24-hour security and refreshments will be available.

Just one warning: The Dallas Police Department will be there to enforce the city’s five-minute idling rule. So enjoy the show, but be sure to shut off your engine.
