E-Mission Engine Idling

Please help us raise funds to develop smartphone software that will help reduce air pollution! 
Since 2006, we have been campaigning in New York to reduce air pollution through engine idling. This journey has led us down many exciting and interesting paths including the release of a movie, a children's book and lobbying with city officials to sign new bills and change laws.
As a result of this work, we are now in a position where citizens can complain about idling commercial vehicles and receive a share of the fine. It's a process that is administratively burdensome, but it works and many testers have earned thousands of dollars in fine shares. Not only that, with all the media attention and citizens activism we have noticed a decline in engine idling and an awareness from drivers. We now want to scale this proven process to have an even greater impact.
Our next step is to produce smartphone software "E-Mission" that will eliminate much of the burden of submissions. It will connect to the City's systems and provide tracking and updates of case status and fines due.
