Capitalist,

The city is not allowed to enact a bylaw unless they are able to enforce it.

Of course the anti-idling bylaw is difficult - if not imossible - to enforce. But the city is obliged to employ a bylaw officer anyway.

The real purpose of the bylaw is to encourage a change in people's behaviour. I for one am constantly giving iding motorists the 'key off' gesture when I see them. It's not rude and you'd be surprised how often motorists oblige. If there is no bylaw there is no incentive to switch off. 50k a year is a small price to pay for clean air.
