Vehicle idling prohibited on Acadia campus

October 30, 2009

Acadia University has introduced a policy banning vehicle idling on campus, with emergency and public transit vehicles excluded. The new rule is part of the university's Share the Air policy, an initiative of the school's joint occupational health and safety committee. Acadia also prohibits tobacco sales, smoking on campus, and the use of scented products. The university will put up signs on campus to publicize the ban, but will not issue fines.
