Common sense, not tickets, needed for vehicles running unattended

The City of Kewaunee has seen its share of vehicles stolen when left running unattended or with the keys left in the ignition.  The number of such cases, however, wouldn't justify ticketing negligent vehicle owners.  Green Bay's police chief is proposing citations for vehicles taken while running unattended because it can cost the city $500 to track down, tow and return each vehicle.  Kewaunee Police Chief Frank Salentine says such an approach is not necessary for his community.  He says what's really needed is for people to use a little common sense.



Idling ordinances are not a new concept.  The City of Appleton has already enacted such an ordinance.
