Alert “06880” reader Jarret Liotta spotted this sign in front of Fairfield Ludlowe High School:
He’d like to see similar signs in Westport.
“All over,” Jarret says. “Especially in front of the Y, where parents idle their cars for 15, 20 minutes and more, waiting for their kids.” He’s spoken with 2 officials about it. They say they often try to get people to stop idling, to no avail.
Jarret thinks a state law prohibits idling for more than 5 minutes. In fact, it’s 3 minutes — as the small print on this sign in front of Staples High School notes:
The car parked in the fire zone is another matter entirely.
