Parked car with idling engine

Reported via desktop in the Vehicle Idling category anonymously at 20:52, Thursday 31 March 2022

Sent to Hackney Council less than a minute later

Moderated by Hackney Council at 07:39, Friday 1 April 2022

At about 5.15pm and again a few minutes later, I passed a car parked at the kerb with its engine audibly running. On the second occasion, I asked the driver to turn his engine off and told him that this is a crime because it makes the air around the car so much worse for pedestrians passing by etc. He refused, demanding to know if I were a police officer and clearly not inclined to do anything without a police warning.
