SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Salt Lake City mayor Rocky Anderson wants to keep city vehicles from wasting gas when they're parked.

Anderson has signed an executive order to keep city employees from idling cars for too long. Police cars and other emergency vehicles are exempt from the rule.

But Anderson doesn't want city cars to be idled for more than five minutes. His order also includes private cars being used on official city business.

A spokesman says department supervisors would be in charge of enforcing the mayoral edict and punishing any violators.
