Summary title: Petition No 0572/2019 by Per Thomas Nillson (Danish) on lack of enforcing of the law on engine idling in the municipality of Copenhagen

Country: Denmark

Petitioner data  

Name: Per Thomas Nilsson

Petition Summary  

The petitioner draws attention to the fact that in the municipality of Copenhagen, the law introduced in 1990 (Idle State Regulation) which prohibits keeping of the engine idling for more than one minute, seems not being enforced by the Copenhagen police. The police in Copenhagen, in his view, cannot or does not wish to make someone liable for a fine for the infringement of such a law, considering it an excessive effort.
