How some swedish communities reduce pollution and promote fuel efficiency

Just a quick note – The Swedes are really interested in fuel efficiency and reducing pollution from vehicles. In addition to driving cars and buses fueled with bio gas, in some cities you may receive a fine for leaving your car idling for more than one minute. This is usually marked with a sign as you enter a city. Many Swedish cities use roundabouts which not only promote safety but also prevent stopping in traffic for too long. Companies with delivery vehicles will often offer training to their employees on how to drive in order to conserve fuel.
