March Spare the Air Walk and Roll

Put a 
Spring in your Step 
Wednesday March 25th for the 
Spare the Air 
Walk and Roll to School Day

Join us to Walk and Roll for Cleaner Air. Help reduce air pollution by:
  • Walking or bicycling instead of driving a car 
  • Turning off the car when sitting or standing at school arrival and dismissal, banks, convenience stores, driveways, and anytime you are parked.
Idling for more than 3 minutes is PROHIBITED in New Jersey  
*with very limited exceptions

Walk or bike to school on your own or join a walking school bus from the Train Station or DiRenzo Park. Walking buses leave at 8 am. See "Walking School Bus" tab above for the route map. 

Students who walk or bike will receive a backpack charm. 

Did you know?
  • Idling fines in NJ begin at $100 for passenger vehicles and $250 for commercial vehicles.  
  • An idling vehicle emits 20 times more pollution than one traveling at 30 miles per hour.
  • Only 10 seconds of idling uses more fuel than turning the engine on and off. If you are idling, you might as well be burning dollar bills.
  • Exhaust emissions worsen asthma, bronchitis, and existing allergies.
