      I was hoping someone could explain why police cars are usually kept
      idling, instead of properly parked, when officers are outside the car.

      Usually, the officer assigned to esorting children to Noyes Elementary
      are outside the car, but their cars are still on. Given the cost of
      fuel and the amount of carbon monoxide released, it seems turning off
      the cars would be a big help to DC residents all around (not to mention
      the children breathing in all that exhaust!).

      Thanks for your insight,
      Kristen
