    But the Saguaro is idle all the time. It’s one of the great paradoxes.

    That's what must've caused their extinction in Massachusetts.

    Get a dog. These snowflakes are ok with humans burning to death in their trucks but not the poor doggy. I know a guy that has his dog trained to sit on the one of the seats whenever he leaves so the police can see he has a dog so he can idle as long as he wants.

    I got one of those tickets on the Mass Pike,in a service plaza, many yrs ago. it was 0200, 9 degrees and blowing snow. he banged on the door and was giving me the option of turning it off or he'd ticket me. I laughed and said write away, ain't gonna happen and he did.

    Truck stop counter myth. LEO's can, and do, give out tickets even if there is a dog or cat in the truck.

    There is no law that says if you have a animal you can idle. That's just a super trucker myth.

    You can be reported for animal cruelty.

    That's not a myth.
