3 minute idle rule

Does this rule apply no matter where you are? I am working on my car under my car port and had the car running. So my bitch ass neighbore comes over and tells me I have 3 minutes because i have to turn off the car and that's the law. So I just waited 3 mins went and drove around the block and came back and idle for 3 more mins. But really, i can turn the car off and turn it back on for another 3 mins, cant I? I hate my neighbores. Only one side complains. The neighbores on the other side don't really care.

# Exemptions from the by-law. Most recent by-laws have a large number of exemptions from the prohibition against idling. The following are typically exempted from the idling provisions, except where idling is "substantially for the convenience of the operator:"

* Fire, police and medical service vehicles
* Vehicles participating in emergency activity
* Vehicles stuck in traffic
* Hot (+27C) or cold (-5C) weather conditions
* Passengers with a medical letter certifying their need for controlled temperature or humidity
* Mobile workshops with equipment powered by the motor, during the course of their work
* Where idling is necessary for maintenance or repair of the vehicle
* Transit vehicles while passengers are embarking or disembarking
* Transit vehicles at a layover or stopover with passengers on board
* Vehicles in a parade or other event authorized by the community
* Armoured vehicles.

I wasn't able to find Vancouver's exact wording ,so it may be different ,North Vans bylaw states to "reduce unnecessary idling on streets" so....

Depends on the city, for example:

The Vancouver bylaw reads as follows:

Idling
2.7 A person must not cause or permit a motor vehicle to idle:
(a) for more than three consecutive minutes in a 60 minute period; or
(b) while unattended and unlocked.
Idling exception
2.8 Section 2.7(a) does not apply to a:
(a) motor vehicle that contains or has attached to it equipment requiring power
from the engine to operate in the course of the operation of such equipment
for a commercial or public purpose;
(b) police, fire, ambulance, or other emergency motor vehicle in the course of the
performance of police, fire, ambulance, or other emergency duties including
training activities;
(c) motor vehicle in the course of assistance in an emergency;
(d) armoured motor vehicle, used to transport money or valuables, in which a
person remains to guard the contents, in the course of the loading or unloading
of such money or valuables;
(e) motor vehicle in the course of a race or parade Council has approved; or
(f) bus while its passengers are in the course of embarking or disembarking.

While the bylaw for the city of Williams Lake has a similar bylaw, but with the following exception:

5.8 This policy does not apply to vehicles being serviced or inspected

Basically, the Vancouver city councillors are a bunch of boneheads who could not think of all the different scenarios when they created their bylaw. But realistically what cop or bylaw officer is going to come all the way to your house to tell you to stop idling your car while you work on it. You'd think that they would have better things to do.

alright, so basically even if my neighbores come over and complain about the 3minute rule. I can just leave it idling while working on it? And the part that requires the engine to be running to use equipment (my laptop) is fine. alright, I guess i'll tell the b!tch next door to shut it.

at the end of the day you are in the right and your neighbor is just being an idiot.

dude isn't a cop or a meter maid so all he can do is complain, forget about it and tell him to leave your property asap!

they have to call it in as a complaint first to the city and believe me, that isn't exactly a high priority call. It might take a while for them to respond unless it is a slow day.

sounds like you've been too lenient with them.


time to tell the to fuck off and just plain start ignoring them... after reading the other thread, this is seriously what's needed.

if they ever call the cops, explain everything to them from the day they moved in and started complaining. if I was the cop I would laugh and tell you to have a nice day.

You should break into their car to show that alarms are necessary.

And then break in again.

dude, just suddenly develop a lawn fetish and keep mowing your lawn like everyday. start it at 630pm or whenever their friends go over for dinner. and do it without the bag the first time. then go back over again with the bag to pick up the clippings. that'll drive em nuts.

and be totally anal with your weedeater. make sure it's ALL level!
