Park City police blotter: Idling vehicles reported
The Park City Police Department last week received at least two complaints of idling vehicles, including one that was also reported to be leaking oil.
Both of the cases were logged on Wednesday, Oct. 16. They did not appear to be related.
A vehicle at 4:13 p.m. that day was reported to be leaking oil on the 2200 block of Kearns Boulevard. The vehicle was also idling, the police were told. The Police Department logged the case as a suspected violation of City Hall’s rules against idling an engine.
Earlier that day, at 10:49 a.m. on Main Street, an apparently unrelated violation of the idling rules was reported.
The City Hall prohibition of idling is a part of the municipal government’s wide-ranging environmental programs.
Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:
