Every winter, many Michiganders warm up their cars for a few minutes before taking off, usually leaving the vehicle unattended while they go back inside.
Not much will change this winter, but now drivers who do so won't face the risk of getting a ticket.
According to reports:
"Drivers will be able to leave their vehicles running unattended on private property under legislation signed by Gov. Rick Snyder.
The law enacted Wednesday leaves intact a prohibition against running a vehicle unattended on a highway.
The measure was introduced after a Roseville man was ticketed $128 for leaving his vehicle unattended in a driveway during the winter."
