Detroit may be known for Bob Seger, the Big Three automakers, and a $300 million city budget shortfall, but its leaders want truckers to know one thing first: Idling beyond five minutes is prohibited.
This week, the Detroit City Council approved an ordinance limiting idling to five minutes during any one-hour period.
The ordinance exempts commercial truck drivers who are stuck in traffic.
The ordinance was sponsored by Councilman Ken Cockrel Jr.
