WOODBRIDGE – The township has received a $10,000 grant to assist with an idle reduction study for idling police vehicles.

One of the Sustainable Jersey grants funded by the Gardinier Environmental Fund for 2018 will implement a study to reduce the idling emissions and fuel usage of police cars that monitor road construction projects, according to information provided by Sustainable Jersey. By law, the police must leave their cars on always. The program will use battery technology to keep the car running without using fuel, according to the statement.
