Turning Off Your Car At Train Stops

Last night as I was driving home from choir practice, the not so very rare sound of a train approaching blared.  Fort Collins seems to have a well-earned reputation of trains coming through town and stopping traffic in its tracks.  Growing up in the countryside of Wisconsin, I am no stranger to long, slow trains.  And thanks to that I am no stranger to the concept of turning the car off when stuck at a train.  However, I have noticed that those around town here in Fort Collins don’t seem to know to do this.

So!  If you find yourself stuck at a train, please turn your engine off!  It’s better for the environment, better for those around you, and better for your car.
