Idle Reduction Facilities Regulation

Repealed: 05/24/2008

The following was repealed by Public Law 110-244: States are permitted to provide facilities in interstate system rights-of-way that allow operators of commercial vehicles to reduce truck idling or use alternate power sources. States may allow idling reduction facilities for commercial vehicles to be placed in rest or recreation areas as well as in safety rest areas constructed or located on rights-of-way of the interstate system. The idling reduction facilities must not reduce the existing number of truck parking spaces at a given rest or recreation area. States may charge a fee or permit charging a fee, for parking spaces actively providing idling reduction measures. For more information, see the Idling Reduction Facilities in Interstate Rights-of-Way fact sheet. (Reference 23 U.S. Code 111)
