Drivers who leave their car engines running while their car is parked face being fined as part of a new town hall initiative.
North Lincolnshire Council will issue £20 tickets to ‘irresponsible drivers who are not considering the environment’.
They say it will help reduce carbon dioxide emissions and tackle climate change.
Other councils across Britain are also considering introducing similar laws after being set air quality targets by ministers in Whitehall.
But angry motorists claim the ‘petty’ measure is simply a ‘money-making scam’.
