Lynn Romanek is encouraging drivers at the wheel of idling vehicles to turn them off while they wait. New Trier Township High School has added a sign urging motorists to turn off their engines. Inspired by the Al Gore movie, "An Inconvenient Truth," Romanek persuaded the owner of A.W. Zengeler Cleaners to place the signs at its drive-through locations, and she is in discussions with officials of Walgreen's and a major Chicago Bank. Romanek, a realtor, has registered her campaign, called Engines Off, with the state so she can apply for grants to get the signs made.
