Allowing idling vehicles to run their engines causes air pollution, heat and noise nuisances and wastes fuel, thereby contributing to global climate change. To tackle these environmental problems, the Administration introduced in April 2010 the Motor Vehicle Idling (Fixed Penalty) Bill to the Legislative Council (LegCo) after consulting the public. After deliberation and scrutiny by the Bills Committee of the LegCo, the Bill was passed in March 2011.
The Ordinance comes into operation on 15 December 2011.
