Doesn't work here either. But, like other bylaws, it's not a problem if you get along with your neighbours.

That's why Edmonton's anti-idling bylaw (which doesn't apply in your driveway anyway) only applies at temperatures above freezing; it also allows 5 minutes per half hour. At this point the target is not people warming up their cars, it's people who don't turn off when waiting at the curb or in a parking lot (specifically at schools and hospitals in Edmonton). I suppose the possibility of freezing weather didn't occur to the North Vancouver people.

Hey! A bylaw that makes sense, nice!

I'd be able to start the engine and have the windshield defrost instead of having to chisel off rine and clear ice. Of course that's after I take the heat gun and thaw the lock to get in.

Vancouver? I thought Anchorage was Lululemon land. I bike to work daily on the ski trails and always get a chuckle when I see the Lululemon gals. Scott

Wifey had a similar issue with the panic button on her key fob. I just opened up the key fob and removed the contacts under the panic button with a pair on needle-nose pliers, then reassembled. No more problem.

I might look into that. My panic alarm is always thing off. That, and the stupid tailgate release button. The handle and shroud surrounding it are now scared up from it accidentally releasing, and riding on my cargo trailer hitch a couple times while under way. I cannot figure for the life of me what use that feature is.
