Letter to the Editor: Rollback of clean car standards

Posted

Please contact the Colorado Air Quality Commission to encourage them to adopt the low emissions vehicle standards that Governor Hickenlooper proposed and ask that they put said rules into the Colorado Code of Regulations.

We have endured dozens of ozone alert days this summer and we can have better air quality if we all make the effort.

Every day I see people sitting in their vehicles with the motor running while they send a text or make a phone call. A car does not need to be running in order to send a text or eat lunch and for each minute it is running, it is adding poisonous pollutants to our already foul air. Newer model cars do not need to be “warmed up” and in fact should not be. If drivers are too cold or too warm,they should go into a building.
Without clean air and clean water nothing else matters.
