Commercial vehicles
MOTOR VEHICLES – Amends existing law to provide that commercial motor vehicles may idle and use refrigeration in certain circumstances.

RS31092 / H0533

This legislation adds new provisions to Section 49-937, Idaho Code, on vehicle mufflers and noise prevention which first allows a commercial vehicle to idle for the purposes of using a vehicle’s heating and air conditioning system when a driver is resting, and second when parked for purposes of refrigerating perishable commodities, pharmaceuticals, or both.

This legislation causes no additional expenditure of funds at the state or local level of government, nor does it cause an increase or decrease in revenue for state or local government, therefore this legislation has no fiscal impact.
