How long can I idle my car in a parking lot(Wawa/711 type of store)? Any thought's, did I break any laws?
Drexel Hill, PA |
I was driving home from work and I got a phone call from my friend(my car has hands free talking system). So we engaged into a lengthy discussion. While driving home, primarily my intention was to stop at Wawa store and get something to eat. Since I was on the phone I did not want to interrupt our conversation and stopped at the store's parking lot. So it happened that I was sitting in my car and talking on the phone about a good half an hour. It happened early in the morning 12am. Parking lot was completely empty. Then somebody from Wawa came out and said that I cant idle in a parking lot any longer. My car is not diesel. I simply responded that I would shortly go to the store and buy something, but person asked me to leave. It wasn't such a big deal, it just left a bad taste in my mouth.
