There's a simple way to judge the effectiveness of this bylaw (and the anti-idling bylaw):

If the activity is deemed to be common enough, and dangerous enough, that a bylaw prohibiting the activity is required, then the measure of its effectiveness is the degree to which the activity ceases after the bylaw is enacted.

By that measure, it seems clear to me that the anti-idling bylaw is a total failure. I saw all sorts of people idling before the bylaw. I still see all sorts of people idling after the bylaw.

There is no apparent difference in the level of idling, thus, the anti-idling bylaw is a failure.

It remains to be seen what will happen with this bylaw, but from the sounds of it, we may expect similar results.
