Cars running idle for a long period during hot summer

I think we should fine drivers who keep their cars running idle for a long period (A midday break to benefit everyone, June 19).

Very often we get to see expensive cars with their engines on, without a driver inside and probably locked from the outside using a spare key.

The sight is common in front of major offices and shopping areas. This is a waste of valuable energy and may present a danger during the hot summer.

People ignore advice on this issue, just to avoid a few minutes of sitting inside a hot car - something they could easily overcome by driving for a few minutes with open windows.

I think the authorities should ensure that Mawaqif inspectors fine drivers those who do this.
