The Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority (Peace Bridge Authority) board of directors announced a new rule in "no idling" zones for the Canada and U.S. secondary Customs plaza areas and  Duty Free parking lots.

This new rule encourages motorists to turn off their engines to help combat pollution and improve air quality.

Look for the "No Idling Zone" signs the next time you are crossing.  The rules will be strictly enforced, and fines will be handed out.
