Drivers urged to switch off engines in traffic queues

When you're stuck at traffic lights or in long queues, do you switch your car engine off or leave the engine idling?

Cities like Southampton, Oxford and Brighton already run 'anti idling campaigns' - but environmental camaigners say drivers should be issued with tougher penalties.

It's a particular issue in areas with large numbers of waiting vehicles - such as outside schools, at taxi ranks and bus stations.
