i68: Hefty fines for idling

Initiative not admitted

This initiative has not been admitted! It failed the 2nd quorum of 10.0% / 1.
Idling is such a big problem, that I am nor sure an information campaign would be sufficient. How about introducing a hefty fine (e.g. 100 Pound) for those who idle and enforcing it, using evidence (e.g. mobile phone video) provided by citizen for enforcement. I bet this would be much more efficient and if the fee is considerable it would actually also create some revenue for the council that could be used for good (green projects for instance).

Rationale
Air pollution is a big public health problem, but it is not treated as such. If people idle, they essentially make other people sick, contributing to pre-mature death and development problems in children. This is a true crime and should be treated as such!
